Drop off vs. drop-off (vs. dropoff)

  •  
  • Drop off is a verb—e.g., “I need to drop off the kids.” Drop-off is a noun—e.g., “There was a drop-off in sales last month.” The noun is sometimes spelled without a hyphen—dropoff. This is not yet the prevalent form (and your spell check probably says it’s wrong), but it is gaining ground and is likely to gain widespread acceptance sooner or later.
