Reading through “Guided Compositions” for secondary School. Heading of composition is “Describe a time when you experienced your first success”. First sentence is as below.
some say success is sweet but mine was bitter sweet.
I tried to google search, I can see only bittersweet, can not find “bitter sweet”(with space in between)
bittersweet (adj): If you describe an experience as bittersweet, you mean that it has some happy aspects and some sad ones.
bitter-sweet (adj): involving or causing feelings of happiness and sadness at the same time
Is there any difference among “bitter sweet”? or bittersweet? or bitter-sweet?
