public class Hyphenation
extends HyphenationPrimitive

This class provides an implementation for the primitive \hyphenation.

The Primitive \hyphenation

The primitive \hyphenation can be used to add hyphenation exceptions to the current language. The argument is a list of white-space separated words enclosed in braces. The hyphenation points are indicated by including a hyphen character (-) at the appropriate places.

When paragraph breaking needs to insert additional break points these hyphenation points are translated into discretionaries. The exceptions specified with the primitive \hyphenation have precedence before the hyphenation points found with the help of hyphenation patterns.

One example which make use of this precedence is the hyphenation exception without any hyphen characters. This can be used to suppress any hyphenation in a single word.


In addition to the behavior of the original TeX definition this implementation can be used to insert words with hyphens as well. To specify the places where a hyphen occurs literally you just ave to include two hyphens in the hyphenation list.
