As it stands, it's mostly just in the very north one finds dual signs.


Should it be in Spain, they will replace inmediately all of them and making with a different language, not bilingual

If i understand this correctly it should be the - so there is not a real pronounciation...

Actually "7" isn't really pronounced, because it's a glottal stop (you make a break). "7" is in English like the hyphen in "uh-oh!" (uh7oh!). So "7" is like the hyphen in [skhoho-mesh] (officially [sqʷχʷuʔməʃ], where "7" is represented with "ʔ"). At least that's how I understand it from this table.

EDIT: Christophorus has explained already.

oh, that makes sense
so it should be actually ʔ, but 7 is similar and probably in official font they didn't have ʔ so they have put 7. like they often put đ instead of đ and vice versa

No, "7" is an official letter in the Squamish orthography, "ʔ" is just a symbol in the International Phonetic Alphabet. But yes, their similarity probably isn't a coincidence. "ʔ" is sometimes represented with a question mark (?), which looks even more similarly.

this is a interesting example - on every direction sign you will find the german name ofenpass,only on the pass itself stand the name in rumantsch.other passes in the same kanton like albula and julier also have rumantsch names but on the pass sign stand the german one.this is the only pass sign i know with only the rumantsch name

On holiday in Hungary, 120 km east of the Austrian border, I found out there are two small villages where German has still survived in the Vértes-region (Schildgebirge):

There are german villages even in Romania, none of those here is Austrian (well I guess some near Bratislava in the past).
