Write: $\beta$||Verknüpfung instead. The two bars break the single
word in two seperate ones, and both are hyphenated normally ($\beta$
will not hyphenate of course, but you get the idea, I hope). A few
things can be inbetween the ||'s, for words like


but normally you use just ||. This even makes sure that the compound
hyphen is slightly longer then the auto-inserted one, so that it is
still possible to distinguish that it is a compound word if hyphenation
happens right at the ||.
