# Re: [NTG-context] lack of hyphenation

So, my question is: Is it okay? or do I need to set
any parameter to allow hyphenation? I do have

hyphenated words. Am I right?
Yes, you are right. Assuming you do not have very long lines
and a small body font, it is quite possible that you are a
victim of one of the recent hyphenation-file name confusions
that have been plagueing recent TeX distributions.

Try this: \showhyphens{hyphenation}

It should print

  Underfull \hbox (badness 10000) in paragraph at lines 2--2
[] \*10ptrmtf* hy-phen-ation

on your terminal. If it doesn't, ConTeXt refuses the hyphenate
English, possibly because the patterns were not loaded in the
format (in that case, updating your ConTeXt is the easiest
solution).

Good luck, Taco
