In a Nemeth transcription, everything is transcribed according to the Nemeth Code, including the glossary. According to Rule XVIII §120, the grouping symbols of English Braille must never be used except to enclose literary material on title pages. If a grouping sign occurs which is not listed, the transcrbier must devise a symbol whose first component is 12356 for opening and 23456 for closing. Those devised symbols would go on the Special Symbols page (and probably a tn at their first occurence).
