Hi Joseph,

French hyphenation is unknown to me, but I have a different approach.

The document main language is invoked in ConTeXt with:

I suspect that if you ask for less hyphenation, you get it.

See my sample:

    \hyphenatedword{T advint qu'il y eut famine au pays/ oultre la
    premiere famine/ qui fut au temps de Abraham. Et Izahak s'en alla
    vers Abimelech Roy des Philisthins en Gerar}

\hyphenatedword is your friend here. I get different results if I
comment the second line (to get normal hyphenation).

I wonder whether this might be causing the issue you’re experiencing.

Just in case it helps,
