9.7 \hyphenation


\hyphenation{word1 ...}

Declares allowed hyphenation points within the words in the list. The words in that list are separated by spaces. Show permitted points for hyphenation with a dash character, -.

Here is an example:

\hyphenation{hat-er il-lit-e-ra-ti tru-th-i-ness}

Use lowercase letters. TeX will only hyphenate if the word matches exactly, no inflections are tried. Multiple \hyphenation commands accumulate.
