Gerard has now graciously agreed to release them under a Debian/FSF free license, hence this update. The patterns themselves are unchanged since 1990, though Gerard may release updates in the future for other incorrect hyphenations which have come to light.

ushyph – US hyphenation patterns

Knuth's hyphenation patterns for English in American orthography (his hyphen.tex) appear here as ushyph1.tex; these patterns will be installed for the default language in any conventional distribution.

In 1990, extended patterns for hyphenation of US English were published (TUGboat 11(1)). They appear here as ushyphen.tex (the basic set) and ushyphmax.tex (a set that is believed to find all admissable hyphenation points).
