TeX hyphenation patterns for Spanish, v 5.0.
This directory is a permanent place for the latest official release of the hyphenation patterns for the Spanish language, valid for xetex, luatex and pdftex.
The GitHub repository is:
They are based on rules, with the help of a dictionary of about 700 000 words, created over 20 years and still expanding.
This project is related to tex-hyphen, the collection of hyphenation patterns for TeX and other systems based on the same algorithm (Mozilla, Kindle, FOP, etc.):
Note however the version bundled with tex-hyphen (in CTAN:language/hyph-utf8/) could be outdated.
hyph-es-generated.texis the main file. This is the file to be replaced in order to update the patterns, after removing the suffix
-generated. Remember you must rebuild the formats (except with luatex).
eshyphexh.texprovides exceptions for traditional rules with adh, exh, and a few more.
division.pdfis a draft of an article (in Spanish) explaining the rules to be applied and how they are being translated into TeX in a unified set of patterns (somewhat outdated).
eshyph-make.luagenerates the patterns, with
eshyph.srcfor prefixes and special cases.
eshyph-test.texmakes a comparison of two hyphenation rules. Use
hyphen-es-base.texfor more or less strict syllabic rules. It requires a file
spanish-words.txtwith a list of words (a sample with about 56 000 entries is supplied in the GitHub repository), one per line. You can (should) filter the words. Requires at least luatex 1.10.
