# [NTG-context] prevent hyphenation

Hi.

I'm typesetting a text with some citations in nineteenth-century Dutch
and French, in which I don't want hyphenation. How can this be done?

I now have two macros:
\def\stophyph{\pretolerance=15000\tolerance=400}
\def\starthyph{\pretolerance=200\tolerance=400}

At the beginning of every citation I enter \stophyph{} and at the end
\starthyph{}. But the cited words are still hyphenated.

Putting single words in a mbox also doesn't help... ;(
