This might be slightly off topic since my main goal is to hyphenate strings in Java, but please bare with me.
I would like to hyphenate strings for US English, ideally taking into account medical terms which tend to be lengthy.
I've used multiple US patterns found on CTAN but notice the hypenation isn't quite correct. For example, inputting a string like
Deoxyribonucleic acid, sternocleidomastoid, dicotiledoneas,Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis
I've got results like these:
De-oxyri-bonu-cle-ic acid, ster-n-oclei-do-mas-toid, di-cotile-doneas,P-neu-monoul-tra-mi-cro-scop-ic-sil-i-co-vol-canoco-nio-sis
Deoxy-ri-bo-nucleic a-ci-d, s-tern-oclei-do-mas-to-i-d, di-co-ti-le-do-ne-as,P-neu-mo-noul-tra-mi-cros-co-pic-si-li-co-vol-ca-no-co-nio-sis
Are there any LaTeX patterns for hyphenating medical terms in (US)English ? If so, where can I find them ?
If not, is it possible to create such a pattern ? Where would I start ?
