# [NTG-context] How to repeat the hyphen?

Hi all,

in composed words with hyphen inside (e.g. modro-zelený = blue-green), the
hyphen character must be repeated at the beginning of the new line
(modro-/-zelený). This rule is obligatory for Czech and Slovak typesetting.

I am able to implement this feature by defining a new command (see \def\= below)
but it means that all appearances of "-" must be replaced (manually) in the source
text. I tried all options of \setuphyphenation but no one gives the correct
result.

Is there any way in ConTeXt how to set it by default?

Best wishes,

Tomáš
