U+058A Armenian Hyphen

U+058A was added in Unicode version 3.0 in 1999. It belongs to the block U+0530 to U+058F Armenian in the U+0000 to U+FFFF Basic Multilingual Plane.

This character is a Dash Punctuation and is mainly used in the Armenian script. The character is also known as yentamna.

The glyph is not a composition. It has no designated width in East Asian texts. In bidirectional text it acts as Other Neutral. When changing direction it is not mirrored. U+058A offers a line break opportunity after its position.

The Wikipedia has the following information about this codepoint:

The dash is a punctuation mark consisting of a long horizontal line. It is similar in appearance to the hyphen but is longer and sometimes higher from the baseline. The most common versions are the en dash , generally longer than the hyphen but shorter than the minus sign; the em dash , longer than either the en dash or the minus sign; and the horizontal bar , whose length varies across typefaces but tends to be between those of the en and em dashes.

Typical uses of dashes are to mark a break in a sentence, or to set off an explanatory remark (similar to parenthesis), or to show spans of time or ranges of values.

The em dash is sometimes used as a leading character to identify the source of a quoted text.
