Pure Python module to hyphenate text
Pyphen is a pure Python module to hyphenate text using existing Hunspell hyphenation dictionaries.
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.
