    Remember that ypogegrammeni will not necessarily look like a hook:
    it may well have a symmetrical (drop-like) form. This is similar to
    the case of Greek perispomeni, which may look similar either to
    combining tilde or to combining inverted breve and thus cannot be
    unified with any of them.
