Google "OR" searches with hyphenated terms don't work?

Hyphenated search terms seem to create inaccurate results
for some Google searches, and I'm puzzled.

Here are the results that I get using the
main search box at :

328        results for:      vacation newcastle-on-tyne
~5,120,000 results for:      vacation paris
0          results for:      vacation newcastle-on-tyne OR paris

I've previously had similar results when combining
"OR" with hyphenated terms.  Maybe you can figure
it out: Why does the "OR" search return no results?

Thanks in advance.
