[code] [textadept] How to embed parent lexer in child lexer?

Hi all,

I have a lexer that embeds another lexer (for some special text in the
code). That works fine using the following code:

-- parent lexer code is above this line

local special_text = {_NAME = 'special_text'}

local special_word = token(l.IDENTIFIER, l.word)

special_text._rules = {
        {'special_word', special_word},

l.embed_lexer(M, special_text, start, stop)

return M

Now I also need to return to the top-level lexing inside the special
text area, i. e. I need to embed the parent lexer inside the child
lexer. Is this possible? If so, how? Unfortunately, I could not come
up with a working solution.

Thanks and kind regards,
