Thanks for the additions. Per Unicode, the final sigma rule applies to
all text using Greek chars, not just text in Greek, so a sentence in
English finishing with a Greek word should presumably apply the rule to
that word, hence having "?" in my list (I am aware that Greek uses ";"
to indicate a question).
