I have noticed that search engines and specially Google improved its quality in better way. The hyphen is such example as it detects words by domain with hyphen (keywords).

Question is if one word will still be better than hyphen keywords. Are there any skilled experience /influence for this or english quality within google is amost perfect?

I have feeling that none-english languages and google are not so perfect as english seach results.

Matt Cutts said that he prefers hyphens when creating directories on sites etc. but for the domain name I don't know.
Btw it's for a pretty good reason, just check the phrase: ExpertsExchange :)
