  The set of files we’re discussing right now is the repository
maintained by Mojca and me; in the case of American English, it’s the
pattern file by Gerard Kuiken, that was called ushyphmax.tex and that we
renamed hyph-en-us.tex for consistency with the other pattern sets.  As
you can see the list of hyphenation exceptions is identical to the one
in hyphen.tex: https://github.com/hyphenation/tex-hyphen/blob/master/hyph-utf8/tex/generic/hyph-utf8/patterns/tex/hyph-en-us.tex
