Hi all, I am a total novice, and I wanted to ask a question about any punctuation that may be used to separate Japanese words. I have seen the new Apple Translation app use the symbol • to separate two words - do Japanese ever use that symbol to separate words, or are they always grouped together without any spaces or symbols to separate them? Thank you 🙏🏼

No, I can't think of a situation like that where the interpunct would be appropriate. You can see all sorts of crazy punctuation in manga (punctuation intended to emphasize certain words), but no, I wouldn't expect to see it in-between an adjective and a noun, unless maybe its a foreign name like ゴールデン・ゲート・ブリッジ or something like that.
