Everything before MIDDLE DOT will be hyphenated normally. My test was

\setmainfont{Linux Libertine O} % it has MIDDLE DOT
\hsize=3pt % everything will be hyphenated

\noindent x environmental·environment

The initial x is just because (Xe)TeX doesn't hyphenate the first word in
a paragraph. You'll see that "environmental" is hyphenated.
