[bksvol-discuss] Re: Accent marks

Those sneaky French.  According to this web page

http://french.lovetoknow.com/French_Accent_Marks

They do have umlauts (though usually called trema when it is used in French words). I say sneaky because, I always thought naive used an acute accent, but the table on the web page clearly uses naive as an example of umlaut accent and it clearly fits the case of pronouncing each vowel separately. I still think in most American books an acute accent is almost always used for naive when it occurs in an English sentence. Now if it's in a French quote, I guess it better be the trema or the gendarmes will be on the way.

I can't help much with how to produce it, though. In MS Word under insert there is a symbols item which brings up a table of all kinds of different characters, but it's hard enough for me to find what I want in there (which is why I don't have any of them is this email), much less how a blind person would.

Hi, Cindy I think it's another word for that umlaut-like mark. I found the word on a site where it was talking about French accent marks (they do seem to have a lot of them). Regards, Kim.

    If your computer has a number pad, make sure numlock is turned on.
    Hold
    down the alt key, and press the following numbers: 0237.
