# Where can I find a list of English hyphenation exceptions?

I know that a nice list of (English) hyphenation exceptions was published in TUGboat, in quite a few installments. Is it compiled somewhere in one place?

-

whenever an update is published in tugboat, the complete "list-so-far" is posted to ctan as a pdf file tb0hyf.pdf and the tex source tb0hyf.tex. the most recent update was in november 2010.

taking a cue from egreg, the entire package, `hyphenex`, is available from ctan and is also part of tex live. the package includes the processing module and the preprocessed list, ushyphex, as well as the tugboat material.

update: suggestions for additions can be mailed to `tugboat@tug.org`

Where do we email suggestions for this list? –  MSC Sep 27 '13 at 13:17
@MSC -- see update. –  barbara beeton Sep 27 '13 at 13:43
What about the new selnolig package? –  Ingo Oct 24 '13 at 13:10

for US-english run

``````kpsewhich ushyphex.tex
``````

for TeXLive => `\$TEXMF/tex/generic/hyphenex/ushyphex.tex`

I don't know if there is also an exception log for GB english.

this isn't the most recent version. tex live 2010 closed before the latest update; for that, you have to go to ctan. –  barbara beeton Jul 12 '11 at 19:30
@Barbara: true, but I have TeXLive 2011 installed :-) –  Herbert Jul 12 '11 at 20:24
@Herbert, I have copied the output of kpswehich ushyphex.tex in between the brackets of an `\input{}` in my preamble, would you say that is the 'correct' way of doing it? –  Ingo Oct 24 '13 at 13:51
you do not need the path a `\input{ushyphex.tex}` should be enough. –  Herbert Oct 24 '13 at 14:10

The CTAN location is

it is part on every TeX installation ... –  Herbert Jul 12 '11 at 13:31
@Herbert: is it also in MiKTeX minimal? –  egreg Jul 12 '11 at 14:40
Thanks a lot! I am not at all surprised that I have it somewhere in my texlive installation - but I did not know the filename... –  mbork Jul 12 '11 at 21:53
@Stephen: A TeX distribution is MiKTeX or TeXLive –  Herbert Sep 12 '11 at 16:34
@Stephen: since `ushyphex.tex` is only in tex live, that i can tell, the only useful statement is "it's in tex live". (note, i don't run an up-to-date miktex, so i'm going by the list of locations in miktex's `files.csv`.) –  wasteofspace Sep 27 '13 at 14:24
