# Babel and hyphenation in Spanish

```Dear @ll. I'm working on a book(Memoir) document in Spanish and the
hyphenation seems to be broken (bad hyphenation points in fairly
simple cases are used). When I check the LaTeX log I can see the
following messages related to Babel:```
```
Babel <v3.8l> and hyphenation patterns for english, dumylang, nohyphenation, ge
rman, ngerman, german-x-2008-06-18, ngerman-x-2008-06-18, french, loaded.

\...@spanish = a dialect from \language0

End of messages**********************************************

What seems to be the problem? In the document, language is set to
"Spanish" and encoding is set to "Language Default"

Thanks for your help.
