Take the corresponding TeX hyphenation file (eg. from
/usr/lib/texmf/tex/generic/hyphen/), remove or comment out everything
but the contents of the \patterns macro, and save it as

Then change /usr/share/groff/tmac/troffrc (the ``.do hla'' line and
the ``.do hpf'' line) so that it uses the newly created hyphenation

The Sirius Cybernetics Corporation incompetently produces a wide range of
inefficient and unreliable high-tech machinery. However, thanks to SCC's
ruthless marketing division, this junk accounts for over 95% of the high-tech
machinery sold in the Galaxy. (SCC's marketing division will be the first
against the wall when the revolution comes.)
