I need to add: I don't know enough of plain TeX/e-TeX to help you with
the right macros; it's just a direction in which you might want to


If you want to remove pattern loading completely, you need to fix
language.dat (for LaTeX) and language.def (for plain LuaTeX), just
keep in mind that this will also influence XeTeX and pdfTeX.
Alternatively you can modify the following line in
    luatex luatex language.def luatex.ini
where you can replace language.def with an empty file and that will
only influence luatex then.
