comment Why does \usepackage[british]{babel} hyphenate the word “alternate” incorrectly?
@Mico I don't mind the downvote too much, I just found it funny that the question has been around for a year and has always had that weird title but the moment you change it to something more grammatically pleasing, someone goes "ugh, shitty question!" ;) That just has a brilliant irony (which doesn't excuse the anonymous downvote, I agree, but oh well).

Interesting! It hadn't occurred to me that ALternate and alTERnate might be hyphenated differently. I couldn't find anything to back this up but it's at least plausible.

I don't think asking these kinds of questions in this comment thread is likely to get much attention by anyone who's able and willing to help. You guys are better off creating a new question for this. You can reference this post if you think it's relevant.

comment Why does \usepackage[british]{babel} hyphenate the word “alternate” incorrectly?
This is very interesting and I especially like the part where we are warned that even in the UK hyphenation might transform from an obscure etymological art to something one can actually perform just by speaking the language ;) But since "alternate" comes from Latin "alternatus", I can't see how altern-ate is necessarily the more etymologically correct hyphenation. Anyway, I think Barbara gave a very good clue by finding an Oxford dictionary that actually differs from the current (?) one. Whatever its reasons may be.

comment How can I use \lVert and \rVert norm symbols (‖x‖) with the Iwona math font?
Two years have gone by without any reply and without the problem being fixed so it's probably safe to say by now that Iwona Math is no longer actively supported.
