# [XeTeX] Odd hyphenations

```Greetings All,

I am having some problems with hyphenation in English and wonder if I am missing
something important in my header file.  The hyphenation program seems to be
misfiring since it gives the following hyphenations: n-ear, s-mall, b-lissful,
s-miling, y-our, and many more like this.  I have been going though and adding
those words to my \hyphenation{} command and that usually fixes them.  But, as I
go through the book, I find that I find a bad hyphenation every few pages.
There are a lot of Indic words in the text and hyphenation will often mess them
up.  That is understandable, but the wrong hyphenation of these English words is
puzzling.  Any suggestions?

My header file and log file are attached.  Actually, I can't seem to find the
log file.  TeXworks says it writes one, but I cannot find it anywhere.

Best wishes,

Neal
