Dear all,

I have a problem with justifying text. The last word in a sentence, for example "Keynesian" is cut into "Key-" at the end of the first sentence and "nesian" at the beginning of the following sentence.

As I send the paper for review, some reviewers do not agree with this presentation. How can I still justify the text but keep the whole word?

Thanks for your comments. Another example to illustrate the problem. If I add some letter before "Keynesian", as you can see, the word "Keynesian" jumps to next line without being splitting.

    You can make it unbreakable by using \mbox{Keynesian}. – TeXnician Sep 20 '17 at 10:24

    You may add \hyphenation{keynesian} in the document preamble. – egreg Sep 20 '17 at 10:24
  • Isn't this case sensitive? Thus \hyphenation{Keynesian}? Oxford Spelling Dictionary suggests \hyphenation{Keynes-ian} btw. – Florian Sep 20 '17 at 10:56
  • @Florian it is case insensitive. – user4686 Sep 20 '17 at 11:34

    I can understand an objection to “Key-nesian” but not to “in-significant”. Hyphenation for better justification is a practice that has been in use for centuries; reviewers should concentrate on the text and not impose their disputable views on typography. – egreg Sep 21 '17 at 22:55
