A simple but working Finnish language hyphenator.
A very simple hyphenator. Hypenates Finnish text with Unicode soft hyphens. (U+00AD) Allows to set margins for words so that they won’t break right at start or end. For example, it’d be a bit silly to break a word like ‘erikoinen’ at ‘e-rikoinen’. With default margin of 1, it breaks like ‘eri-koinen’.
Usage: as standalone script:
hypenate_finnish.py 2 joo joo no testaillaan täs vaa
OR as a Python module:
from hyphenate_finnish import hyphenate(text, margin=1)
It’s that simple. By the way, written with Py3k, but it seems to work with 2.7 too.
