In the Latin alphabet, the letter P typically does not have any standard diacritical marks or accents associated with it. The letter P is used in its standard form in numerous languages as an initial consonant sound /p/ as in “pat,” “pen,” or “park.”

However, there are a few languages and transliteration systems that may use modified versions of the letter P with diacritical marks to represent specific sounds or phonetic nuances to differentiate it from the standard /p/ sound. Here are some examples:

Pashto: In the Romanization of the Pashto language, the letter Ƥ (P with a hook) is used to represent the sound of the Latin letter P in Pashto.

African reference alphabet (ARA): The ARA system is used for some African languages, and in this system, the letter Ƥ (P with a hook) is used to represent the voiceless bilabial fricative sound, similar to the Welsh letter “ff.”

The transliteration of some African languages: In the transliteration of some African languages, modified versions of the letter P with diacritical marks might be used to represent specific phonetic sounds unique to those languages.

It’s important to note that the usage of diacritical marks with the letter P is relatively rare and specific to certain languages or phonetic systems. In the vast majority of languages that use the Latin alphabet, the letter P is used without any diacritical marks and represents the standard “p” sound.

In summary, while some languages and transliteration systems may use modified versions of the letter P with diacritical marks to represent specific sounds, the standard letter P is the most commonly used form in the Latin script across various languages worldwide.
