Do accents matter in French?

The answer is yes and no. The French language is known for its many rules but there are also many exceptions to those rules. In general, French accents are used to indicate pronunciation as well as to differentiate between words that are otherwise spelled identically.

What accents exist in French?

There are several accents that can be used in French, including the following:

- The cedilla (ç) is used on the letter c to indicate that it is pronounced /s/ instead of /k/. This appears in the word façade.

- The acute accent (é) is used on the letter e to indicate that it is pronounced /ay/, as in the word école.

- The grave accent (è) is used on the letter e to indicate that it is pronounced /eh/, as in the word père.

- The circumflex (ê) is used on the letters a, e, i, o, and u to show that they are pronounced differently than if the accent were not present. The French word sûr is pronounced differently than the word sur.

- The diaeresis (ë, ï, ü) is used on the letters e, i, and u to show that they are pronounced as two separate vowels, as in the word Noël. The diaeresis looks the same as a German umlaut, but has a different purpose in French.
