Long hyphen? What's that? You mean a long dash, like an en dash or an em
dash? That's the typical way of indicating dialogue for example in
Polish books. Example:
— No, proszę — rzekł książę — to waćpan z Litwy rodem?
— Z Litwy! — odparł bez zająknienia pan Zagłoba.
Note that in Polish, that’s not really considered a “quotation” stricto
