It's Greek to me :)
I tried
and also

\input luaotfload.sty
\font\test={file:cmunrm.otf} at 10 pt

\input ../lccodes.tex
\input sample2_fr.tex

and get the same hyphenation. Ans thanks for possible hyphenations :)

Here: lccodes.tex contains lccodes (as Mojca suggested but for European
languages), sample2_fr.tex contains \showhyphens{Médaille}.

So I missed something (plain TeX is unknown territory for me).

Tactical?  TACTICAL!?!?  Hey, buddy, we went from kilotons to megatons
several minutes ago.  We don't need no stinkin' tactical nukes.
(By the way, do you have change for 10 million people?) --lwall
