This is my first conlang post in long ages.
In Graavgaaln there is an interesting use of a punctuation mark that looks
like a colon. The native script of the Graavguurdaan is right-to-left with
a binding head-line. The head-line is written over a single word, so breaks
in words are clearly marked by breaks in the head-line. However in some
compound words and all personal names and colon-like punctuation mark is
inserted between the two elements.
