File name: README Version: 4.0 Author: Dimitrios Filippou Date: Aug. 16, 2004 This file contains a brief description of the Greek hyphenation- pattern files for TeX/LaTeX (and for Omega) prepared by Dimitrios Filippou. The patterns were originally designed for the "greek" option of "babel" and Dryllerakis' GreeKTeX package. However, this set can be used to produce hyphenation patterns for typesetting Greek with the "ibycus" option of "babel" (package "ibycus-babel") or with Omega/lambda (package "antomega"). The hyphenation patterns for "ibycus" (for ancient Greek *only*) can be produced by running a perl script on "grahyph.tex". The perl script has been written by Peter Heslin (email@example.com) as part of his "ibycus-babel" package. The hyphenation patterns for Omega/lambda (files "ogr*.tex") can be produced by running a perl script on "grahyph.tex", "grahyph.tex" and "grahyph.tex". The perl script has been written by Apostolos Syropoulos (firstname.lastname@example.org) as part of the "antomega" package. THESE PATTERNS HAVE NOT BEEN TESTED. ANY FEEDBACK IS WELCOME! This package supersedes all previous versions found in CTAN. A more detailed description of how hyphenation of Greek works (in English) is presented in the TUG2004 conference and is included in the conference proceedings (to be published by Springer in the series Lecture Notes in Computer Science). Possible caveats: 1) You may not get proper hyphenation in paragraphs with mixed Greek and non-Greek text. This is a known TeX problem. Using eTeX (or the latest LaTeX releases which are based on eTeX) can resolve this problem. -- Bug reported by Peter Heslin (email@example.com) 2) Initial accentuated vowels may not be hyphenated under Omega/ lambda: e.g., under Omega/lambda, the word ">aet'oc" (eagle) may be be hyphenated as ">ae-t'oc" instead of ">a-e-t'oc". To fix this problem I must add an extra series of hyphenation patterns in the original "gr?hyph.tex" and then convert them to "ogr?hyph.tex". But this way I would mess my original "gr?hyph.tex" and I don't want to do that. -- Bug reported by Alexej Krioukov (firstname.lastname@example.org) Acknowledgements The author wishes to thank all those mentioned who have contributed directly and indirectly to the creation of these pattern files: C. Beccari, K. Dryllerakis, Y. Haralambous, P. Heslin, S. Konstandatos A. Krioukov and A. Syropoulos.

hyphenation-greek – Hyphenation patterns for ancient and modern Greek
Contains the hyphenation patterns for ancient Greek and modern Greek in polytonic (multi-accent) and monotonic (uni-accent) systems. The hyphenation patterns will work perfectly with the babel greek option or with Dryllerakis’ GreeKTeX. The patterns can easily be converted for use with the ibycus fonts (see the ibycus-babel package), or with Omega/Lambda (see the antomega package). For any other Greek package, the patterns will have to be re-coded.
