Hello Marcus

This answer might help : http://www.mail-archive.com/ntg-context@ntg.nl/msg59507.html
A bit hard to find as the word used is « potrusion ».
Hope this helps

Objet :[NTG-context] Hanging hyphen in the left margin in Portuguese

Dear list,

In Portuguese many times we have words with one or two explicit hyphens; for example: “tornar-nos-emos” (we shall become). When at the end of a line, it
is mandatory to repeat the explicit hyphen both at the end and in the beginning of the next line. I managed to do this using:

\definebreakpoint [portuguese] [-] [type=5,left=-,right=-,middle=-]

If I use
I get the first hyphen hanging in the right margin.

My question is: How do I manage to have the second hyphen in the beginning of the new line also hanging to the left in the left margin?
