The Latin letter O can be modified with various diacritical marks or accents to represent specific sounds or to indicate stress or vowel quality in different languages. Here are some of the common diacritical marks used with the letter O:
1. Accent marks:
– The acute accent (ó) is used in languages like Spanish, Portuguese, and Hungarian to indicate a stressed or high-pitched pronunciation of the vowel.
– The grave accent (ò) is used in languages like Italian, Catalan, and French to indicate a specific pronunciation or to distinguish homophones.
– The circumflex accent (ô) is used in languages like French, Portuguese, and Romanian to indicate specific vowel sounds or lengthening of the vowel.
– The diaeresis/umlaut (ö) is used in German, Swedish, and other languages to represent a distinct vowel sound. It indicates that the vowel should be pronounced separately rather than forming a diphthong with the preceding vowel.
3. Other diacritical marks:
– The macron (ō) is used in Latin transliteration and some Native American languages to indicate a long vowel sound.
