Which way do you want to specify your own hyphenation?
Number of words in \hyphenation is severely limited in most
implementations (this list is checked against every 
word to be hyphenated). So e.g.
\language255 % given that is not used yet
\hyphenation{all your hyph-en-ated words} %for your \language255
will do the job.

Much better approach would be loading your patterns for
your language and making new format with INITeX.
