We are discussing our experiments we made when learning feedforward neural network to find possible hyphenation points in all words of given language. Neural networks show to be a good device for solving this difficult problem. The structure of the multilayer neural network used is given, together with a discussion about training sets, influence of input coding and results of experiments done for the Czech language. We end up with pros and cons of our approach tested - hybrid architecture suitable for a multilingual system.
