Thanks for the response, Bruce.


1) The file you attached doesn't include the word "wolfing", nor "wolfin".

The suffixes section accounts for this. Wolfing and wolfish both suppress
the ligature correctly.

I removed the comma separators, good catch. No difference, though.

Looks like I edited
/opt/context/tex/texmf-context/tex/context/patterns/mkxl/lang-en.llg
instead of the LMTX file. SMH.

I've now tried both files, lmtx and mkxl:

            suffixes = [[
                in
                in'
                in’
                ing
            ]],

Wolfish works fine, the ligature is suppressed as expected. Wolfing,
wolfin, and wolfin' aren't suppressed. I'd have thought that defining the
word "wolf" with a suffix of "ing" (and variations thereof) would suppress
ligatures at the suffix boundary?

Maybe that's not the case. If so, then it means having to define all the
*f-ing words (heh) a few times for the different suffixes (in', in’, and
ing), which seems to defeat the purpose of separating suffixes?

Help is appreciated.
