# Responsive

To control the word breaks in an element only at a specific breakpoint, add a {screen}: prefix to any existing word break utility. For example, adding the class md:break-all to an element would apply the break-all utility at medium screen sizes and above.

<p class="break-normal **md:break-all** ...">
<!-- ... -->
</p>
