Inverted interrobang A reverse and upside down interrobang (combining ¿ and ¡, Unicode character: ), suitable for starting phrases in Spanish, Galician and Asturian is called an "inverted interrobang" or a gnaborretni (interrobang written backwards).<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref> In current practice, interrobang-like emphatic ambiguity in Hispanic languages is usually achieved by including both sets of punctuation marks one inside the other (¿¡Verdad!? or ¡¿Verdad?! [Really!?]).<ref>RAE's Diccionario Panhispánico de Dudas </ref> Older usage, still official but not widespread, recommended mixing the punctuation marks: ¡Verdad? or ¿Verdad!<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=book }}{{ safesubst:#invoke:Unsubst||$N=Page needed |date=__DATE__ |$B= {{#invoke:Category handler|main}}{{#invoke:Category handler|main}}[page needed] }}</ref>
