What’s that thing always flying over a’s and e’s in French words?
It’s a bird, it’s a plane… nope, it’s a diacritic!
Definition: “A mark near or through an orthographic or phonetic character or combination of characters indicating a phonetic value different from that given the unmarked or otherwise marked element” – Merriam Webster Dictionary
Used In a Sentence: Two diacritics appear over the E and A in the word “déjà vu.”
