This module is a fork of python-hyphenator, written by Wilbert Berendsen.

Many dictionaries are included in pyphen, they come from the LibreOffice git repository and are distributed under various licenses, including the LGPL version 2.1 also used for pyphen.

See: http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/dictionaries/tree/

Usage:

>>> import pyphen
>>> 'nl_NL' in pyphen.LANGUAGES
True
>>> dic = pyphen.Pyphen(lang='nl_NL')
>>> dic.inserted('lettergrepen')
'let-ter-gre-pen'
>>> dic.wrap('autobandventieldopje', 11)
('autoband-', 'ventieldopje')
>>> for pair in dic.iterate('Amsterdam'):
...     print(pair)
...
('Amster', 'dam')
('Am', 'sterdam')
>>>

Features:
