In the Swedish language, several letters are accompanied by accents or diacritical marks, which are used to modify their pronunciation. Here are the letters with accents or diacritics used in the Swedish alphabet:
- Å (a ring): Pronounced as /oː/. Example: “år” (year).
- Ä (a with diaeresis/umlaut): Pronounced as /ɛ/. Example: “äpple” (apple).
- Ö (o with diaeresis/umlaut): Pronounced as /ø/. Example: “öl” (beer).
These three letters, Å, Ä, and Ö, are an integral part of the Swedish alphabet and are considered distinct letters, not just variations of the unaccented letters A, A, and O. They are used in various words and are essential for correct spelling and pronunciation in the Swedish language.
