Word final vowels with punctuation following, e.g. full stop, question mark.

the following sentence:

Tôi yêu tiếng nước tôi từ khi mới ra đời.

is represented in strict VIQR as:

To^i ye^u tie^'ng nu+o+'c to^i tu+` khi mo+'i ra ddo+`i\.

Notice the escaping of the full stop at the end of the sentence.
Without the escaping the full stop would be converted to diacritic
below the letter "i".

or another example:

Anh ddi dda^u\?

This escaping is part of VIQR and any input system that is based on VIQR.
