You might change the values for 'hyph_size' to higher values. The
default is 8191 which you can increase to higher values, but should be
less than 32676.

You may open the texmf.cnf in a text editor, change the values of
'hyph_size' and recreate your formats afresh. That is all you need to do.

It will be so kind of you if you can remove the above disclaimer from
your list mails as it is sickening to see it every time. If it is beyond
your control, please use an alternate email which does not have it.
