Pardon my ignorance, but wot are "diacritical marks " ???????
Definition: A mark that is placed on a letter to indicate that it has a different pronunciation than it would otherwise, or to indicate that the word has a different meaning than it would otherwise.English uses diacritical marks almost solely in words of foreign origin, and they are often omitted. Examples of English words using diacritical marks are "façade" (which uses a cedilla), "résumé" (two accent marks), "naïve" (umlaut) and "piñata" (tilde).
