Move to "South-Central Alaska"?[edit]

Having "Southcentral" as one word looks a little unusual to me. Maybe it's how the locals do it, and that's fine, but otherwise we should probably add a hyphen there. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 14:45, 4 January 2019 (UTC)

Every un-hyphenated formulation of this type (southeast(ern), northwest(ern), midwestern, etc.) looks weird to me. I assume it to be an Americanism, but perhaps it's not. --ThunderingTyphoons! (talk) 17:46, 4 January 2019 (UTC)
But as to whether it's local usage, W:Southcentral Alaska seems to exist uncontroversially.--ThunderingTyphoons! (talk) 17:47, 4 January 2019 (UTC)
Americans do it a little more than Europeans, perhaps, but to combine "south" and "central" surprises me. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 18:14, 4 January 2019 (UTC)
