Here's an example from Greek, from my modern Greek grammar schoolbook.
This kind of undertie (hyphen) indicates a single syllable. The text
39. The word _voΓtheia_ is also spoken _voΓth(eia)_ in three
syllables, _dΓ½o_ is also spoken _dyo_ in one syllable.
I'm also attaching a scan from _ΟΞΏ ΟΞΏΞ΄Ξ¬Ο'Ξ½ΞΏΞ½_, a novel written in Pontic
Greek. In the word "Ξ»ΞΏΞ³Ξ±ΟΞΉΞ¬Ξ΅ΞΉΟ", they wanted to indicate that "ΟΞΉΞ¬Ξ΅ΞΉΟ"
is a single syllable, and it seems they couldn't or didn't want to use a
quadruple undertie, so they used two double ones. This book uses quite a
lot of double underties, but no triple ones (there is no ambiguity,
thanks to Greek orthography).
