Thanks a lot. I hope I can do it by myself. My understanding of problems with those patterns is that the author incorrectly specified groups of letters (E.g.: made 'ь' a consonant which is incorrect) and this lead to conflicts since there are special rules for ь ' й ў.
BTW, I found another variant of patterns in OpenOffice 
It doesn't include impossible combinations (mostly) and even have some exceptions from general rules.
There are still some duplicates and conflicts.
ь8ь ь1ь % 'ьь' is an impossible combination anyway
Actually .пад1ж should override д8ж
Is this correct?
It seems to me this is a better starting point.
And one more question:
If I need to prohibit hyphenation before й or ў can I write 8й 8ў ?
Or I need write all possible combinations of vowel + й|ў ?
Thanks and regards,
