In the Turkish language, several letters are accompanied by accents or diacritical marks, known as Turkish diacritics. These marks affect the pronunciation and are crucial for proper spelling. Here are the accented letters used in the Turkish alphabet:

  1. Ç (c cedilla): Pronounced as /ʧ/ (ch sound). Example: “çay” (tea).
  2. Ğ (soft g): Known as “yumuşak ge” in Turkish, it lengthens the preceding vowel. It is not pronounced on its own. Example: “ağaç” (tree).
  3. İ (dotless i or Turkish “i”): This letter represents the close front unrounded vowel /i/. Example: “kedi” (cat).
  4. I (dotted ı or Turkish “ı”): This letter represents the close back unrounded vowel /ɯ/. Example: “sıcak” (hot).
  5. Ö (o with umlaut): Pronounced as /ø/. Example: “göz” (eye).
  6. Ş (s cedilla): Pronounced as /ʃ/ (sh sound). Example: “şapka” (hat).
  7. Ü (u with umlaut): Pronounced as /y/. Example: “türkü” (Turkish folk song).

These diacritics are an integral part of the Turkish alphabet and are essential for representing the unique phonetic qualities of the language. Proper use of these accents ensures correct pronunciation and spelling in Turkish words.
