Sue, I'm not Tom, but -- I started to explain but googled to be sure I was correct in thinking it's used in Spanish and I found this wonderful definition--"A diacritical mark ( ~ ) placed over the letter n in Spanish to indicate the palatal nasal sound (ny), as in cañon, or over a vowel in Portuguese to indicate nasalization, as in lã, pão." (I didn't know it was used in Portuguese). I think Tom described it as an elongated s lying on its side. A grave accent is the reverse of the acute accent, i.e it' slants left and the acute slants right. I just noticed that on my keyboard the key to the left of the number one has a tilde at the top and the grave symbol (BTW, Tom--you did spell it correctly--but Sue, it's pronouced grahv) symbol at the bottom. It's used in both French and other languages--I can't remember if it's used much in Spanish, but I googled again and found it's in Italian and other languages, too.
