Many dictionaries are included in pyphen, they come from the LibreOffice git repository and are distributed under various licenses, including the LGPL version 2.1 also used for pyphen.

>>> dic.wrap('autobandventieldopje', 11)
('autoband-', 'ventieldopje')
>>> for pair in dic.iterate('Amsterdam'):
...     print(pair)
...
