  • Example sentences
    • Admittedly a lot of those are basic Roman characters with diacritics but the exact positioning of the diacritic can be tricky - and it can sometimes modify the basic character shape.
    • Accuracy is thus particularly relevant when testing reading in a pointed orthography, which involves attention to both letters and diacritics in different linguistic contexts.
    • The other three vowels are represented by diacritics, which are super- or sub-scripted to the letters in a word.
