In the Romanian language, several letters are accompanied by accents or diacritical marks, which significantly affect their pronunciation and may distinguish them from their unaccented counterparts. Here are the accented letters used in the Romanian alphabet:
- Ă (a breve): Pronounced as /ə/. Example: “măsură” (measure).
- Â (a circumflex): Pronounced as /ɨ/. Example: “mână” (hand).
- Î (i circumflex): Pronounced as /ɨ/. Example: “înalt” (tall).
- Ș (s-comma): Pronounced as /ʃ/. Example: “școală” (school).
- Ț (t-comma): Pronounced as /ʦ/. Example: “țară” (country).
The letters ă, â, î, ș, and ț are specific to the Romanian language and are not present in most other languages that use the Latin alphabet. These diacritical marks are crucial for correct pronunciation and spelling in Romanian.
Additionally, the letter “s” can also appear with a cedilla (ş) in older Romanian orthography, but it has been mostly replaced by the “ș” with a comma. The cedilla version is no longer standard in modern Romanian spelling.
Please note that the accents or diacritical marks in Romanian play a significant role in distinguishing different sounds and are essential for accurate spelling and pronunciation in the language.
