Word hyphenation using Franklin Mark Liang's algorithm (aka Knuth-Liang algorithm). As used by Knuth in TeX and LaTeX, and ported to many other languages. HYPHENATE takes the word, and returns the parts that can be separated by hyphens.

### Examples ###

>> hyphenate("hyphenation")
ans =
"hy" "phen" "a" "tion"

>> hyphenate('supercalifragilisticexpialidocious')
ans =
'su' 'per' 'cal' 'ifrag' 'ilis' 'tic' 'ex' 'pi' 'ali' 'do' 'cious'

>> hyphenate('project')
ans =
'project'

### Note ###

I just ported this algorithm to MATLAB, but am not responsible for it deciding where it splits words.
