No more sneaking around on tiptoe vs. tip-toe

A lot of writers have been skulking around this word, hoping that no one notices they don’t know which one is correct. Time to smell the tulips, authors!

Tiptoe and tiptoeing are one word. That means no space no hyphen between tip and toe.

Perhaps because of the rhythm of the word, tiptoe seems to need a hyphen. Of the most common reasons for using a hyphen (compound adjective, unusual compound nouns, ages, etc.), tiptoe doesn’t fit any of them, however.
