\starttext

     \definedfont[Serif]   % no kerns and ligatures and ...
     \hsize 10cm           % kind of columns
     \emergencystretch10cm % make sure we can be very loose
     \looseness 6          % losen up the already not ideal paragraph
     \normallanguage0      % don't hyphenate
     \input tufte          % some text

\stoptext
