In the Italian alphabet, there are five letters that are accompanied by accents or diacritical marks, which modify their pronunciation or differentiate them from their unaccented counterparts. Here are the accented letters used in the Italian alphabet:
- À (a grave): Pronounced as /a/. Example: “màre” (sea).
- È (e grave): Pronounced as /ɛ/. Example: “sèrie” (series).
- É (e acute): Pronounced as /e/. Example: “trentatré” (thirty-three).
- Ì (i grave): Pronounced as /i/. Example: “rìo” (river).
- Ò (o grave): Pronounced as /ɔ/. Example: “nòte” (night).
- Ù (u grave): Pronounced as /u/. Example: “ùva” (grape).
It’s important to note that the Italian alphabet does not include other letters with diacritical marks, such as the circumflex (â, ê, î, ô, û) or diaeresis/umlaut (ä, ë, ï, ö, ü), as seen in some other languages like French or German. The above-mentioned accented letters are the primary diacritical marks used in the Italian language.
