Use a normal hyphen and the \setbreakpoints command.

\setuppapersize    [monarch]
\definefontfeature [default] [default] [protrusion=quality]
\setupalign        [hanging]
\setuptolerance    [horizontal,strict]
\setbreakpoints    [compound]
\showframe         [text] [text]
\dorecurse{21}{Multisyllabic-words-separated-by-hyphens. }
