    I see no reason given for us not to unify the
    handwritten symbol we have seen with BREVE ABOVE.
    In the environment described, apparently bg is
    taken as an abbreviation for berg, and bg (with
    breve) is being used as an abbreviation for burg.
    The breve is the same as was used in German to
    differentiate u from n.

    The thing in those examples shown as a curly
    thing between the b and the g should be encoded
    as a brever over the b.

    That's my opinion, anyway.
