I noted that context seems to be most reluctant to hyphenate. So I ran a test 
file through plain tex, pdftex and Context and checked the results. Context 
hyphenated less than the other two.

The manual does not say much about hyphenation. I am using a fresh TeXLive 

Here is the top part of the log-----------------------------------------------

It seems to act as if the hyphenation dictionary weren't here. If I put in a 
discretionary hyphen  Context will use it.
