What is the correct syllabification of the word "eliminate"?
What is the Authoritative Source for syllabification?
Just in case it is needed, the word is used in the sentence:
To allow more ef|fi|cient usage of paper, more reg|u|lar ap|pear|ance of right-side mar|gins with|out re|quir|ing spac|ing ad|just|ments, and to elim|i|nate the need to erase hand-writ|ten long words begun near the end of a line that do not fit, words may be di|vided at the near|est break|point be|tween syl|la|bles and a hy|phen in|serted to in|di|cate that the let|ters form a word frag|ment, not a word.

Sorry if my question is too simple, English is not my first language.
