For each language, a language selector \l@<language_name> is
defined. Language names and associated hyphenation patterns
are defined in language.dat. Depending on which distro you
use, language.dat may be a compiled file. On Debian's
tex-live it is built by update-language out of files in
/etc/texmf/language.d, where you can add new language defs.
