Summary:  Let K be a compact abelian group dual to a discrete abelian group which possesses an archimedean linear order. Let W = EH^2(K) be a Beurling subspace of L^2(K), where H^2(K) is the space of analytic functions and E is a unimodular function on K. We show that if E satisfies an approximation condition, then there is a standard invariant subspace H so that the orthogonal projection $pr : W \to H$ is injective and has dense range. We explain that this kind of consideration can be regarded as a generalization of the study of Toeplitz operators.
