German language (and other) hyphenation algorithms
  1 review

Wordaxe allows python programs to automatically hyphenate text using an algorithm based on decomposing compound words into base words.

the algorithm is suitable for any language that extensively uses closed-form compound words, as long as a base word list is provided. currently such a list only exists for german.

in addition, wordaxe implements other algorithms:

* a language-independent algorithm that only hyphenates at a few special
characters (in particular, '-').
* a (currently incomplete) port of the tex hyphenation algorithm to pure
* a wrapper for the pyhnj library (called python-hyphen in debian).
wordaxe integrates with the reportlab library to provide automatic hyphenation for the paragraph line-breaking method.
