    Great! Just one comment: mentions to Galician in this document mean the
    official Galician government orthography, while a significan number of
    Galician speeakers prefer any of two or three other spelling standards,
    none of which uses inverted punctuation.

    I suppose the same goes for Asturian and other minority languages in
    Spain, but I have no data. OTOH, I would not be surprised if inverted
    punctuation were used in at least some spanish-american minority native
    languages, such as Guarany.
