# [NTG-context] strange issue with hyphens

```Dear list,

I’m experiencing a weird issue with hyphenation:

\setuphyphenation

\starttext
\hyphenatedword{a-legibility-c}

\sethyphenationfeatures
[strict]
\hyphenatedword{a-legibility-c}
\stoptext

I need the setup hyphenation commands to get underscore hyphenation.

But how can I make that strict hyphenation features behave as standard
hyphenation ones?

I mean, that the first hyphen doesn’t get doubled and that hyphenation
is also enabled after the first hyphen.

I don’t know whether the strict hyphenation features are misbehaving
here or I am missing something very basic here.
