French shares the same alphabet as English, but it has several diacritics. The main use of diacritics in the Latin alphabet is to change the sound value of the letter to which they are added.
Diacritics used in French are :
- acute accent ( é )
- cedilla ( ç )
- circonflex accent ( â ê î ô û )
- diaeresis ( ë ï ü )
- grave accent ( à è ù )
