I have dug out some more examples on ZWL/ZWNL:

The german word

Taufliege can be read two ways:

Tau{fl}iege (drosophila)
Tau{f}{l}iege (baptising bed)

with different hyphenation and pronounciation (and of course translation to
foreign languages).

In german fraktur typesetting, the {ck} ligature is mandatory, with one important
exception: It is forbidden, if the group ck is pronounced /tsk/ in names of
slavonic origin (e. g. Hrdli{c}{k}a).
