Just as the heading says: How do we hyphenate (in the sense of: divide at the end of a line) the word
- I was quite surprised that Merriam-Webster doesn't know that word.
- The Oxford English Dictionary neither shows hyphenation nor syllabication.
- Microsoft Word 2010 offers
con-fig-u-ra-ble, which I believe to be incorrect since I have read somewhere that
a-at the end of a line, followed by
bleat the begin of the next line would mislead the reader in most cases, and that
abletherefore usually should be kept together.
- hunspell (which drives most open-source projects like OpenOffice, LibreOffice, Firefox, Thunderbird and the like) says
con+fig+urable, which I believe to be correct, but not complete.
My personal feeling is that it could be
con+fig+ur+able, but as a native German speaker who never has been in a country where English is spoken as primary language, I am lost at this point.
Could somebody please help me out?
