I don't have time to do in-depth checking of your files, but as a  
general rule, it's a good idea to examine and fix the first error TeX  
reports, and see if that helps -- often, subsequent errors are a  
result of an earlier one.

In your log file, the first error seems to be:

	! Missing number, treated as zero.
	<to be read again>
	l.42 \defaulthyphenchar={

This is pretty clear. \defaulthyphenchar is a TeX parameter that  
expects a number; you haven't given it one. The usual value would be  
45, or "2D if you prefer to specify it in hex -- the character code of  
the ASCII hyphen character. I'd be surprised if you have a reason to  
change this.

Fix that first error, and quite likely it'll affect what follows, too.
