Hi Joseph,

French hyphenation is unknown to me, but I have a different approach.

When messing with disc nodes one can argue if some of then need to become discretionary nodes or keep their other type. This change keeps it more original (of course one can argue about it) which has some consequence for the number of passes that tex makes (pass without hyphenation, pass with hyphenation, pass with hyphenation and stretch)

i plan to makes things a bit more configureable in the alternative hyphenator

one can also argue that the first pass can be omitted (i.e. always go for the best solution)

MWE (well as close to MWE I could write, requires EBGaramond unfortunately).


The document main language is invoked in ConTeXt with:


\setupalign[hanging, lesshyphenation, hz]

I suspect that if you ask for less hyphenation, you get it.

See my sample:

    \hyphenatedword{T advint qu'il y eut famine au pays/ oultre la
    premiere famine/ qui fut au temps de Abraham. Et Izahak s'en alla
    vers Abimelech Roy des Philisthins en Gerar}

\hyphenatedword is your friend here. I get different results if I
comment the second line (to get normal hyphenation).

I wonder whether this might be causing the issue you’re experiencing.

Just in case it helps,
