Hyphenation patterns for British English

These patterns were derived from a word-division list generously provided by the Oxford University Press (for the purpose of generating these patterns, only). ‘British English’ hyphenation differs from the default patterns provided with TeX, in that they are etymologically based; American patterns tend to be more pragmatically derived.

Version 2 has added a short list of hyphenation exceptions.
