TeX breaks the words as per the hyphenation pattern it seems
appropriate. If it cannot find the
appropriate place to break a word, like when it comes across names,
technical terms, etc., it prints it out for you to look into the word
and suggest a good place to break. Just put \- at the place where you
want TeX to break the word.
