Ò ò

Ò, ò (o-grave) is a letter in French, Catalan, Lombard, Occitan, Kashubian, Scottish Gaelic, Taos, Vietnamese, Haitian Creole, and Welsh. It also appears in Italian as a variant of o.

Usage in various languages

Kashubian

Ò is the 28th letter of the Kashubian alphabet and represents /wɛ/.

Vietnamese

In Vietnamese alphabet ò is the huyền tone (falling tone) of “o”.

Chinese

In Chinese pinyin, ò is the yángqù tone (阳去, falling tone) of “o”.

Welsh

In modern Welsh the grave accent is used on o to denote a short [ɔ] sound in a word which would otherwise be pronounced with a long [oː] sound, for example còd [kɔd] "cod" versus cod [koːd] "code".

Italian

In Italian, the grave accent is used over any vowel to indicate word-final stress, e.g. Niccolò (equivalent of Nicholas - the forename of Machiavelli), but it can also be used on non-final vowels to indicate where the stress falls or whether an o or an e is open or closed (e.g. còrso, "Corsican", vs. córso, "course"). Ò always represents the open-mid back rounded vowel.
