Ò ò

Ò, ò (o-grave) is a letter of the Latin script.

Usage[edit]

It is used in Catalan, Emilian-Romagnol, Lombard, Occitan, Kashubian, Sardinian, Scottish Gaelic, Taos, Vietnamese, Haitian Creole, Norwegian and Welsh. It also appears in Italian as a variant of o.

Usage in various languages[edit]

Kashubian[edit]

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

Vietnamese[edit]

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

Chinese[edit]

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

Welsh[edit]

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

Italian[edit]

In Italian, the grave accent is used over any vowel to indicate word-final stress: Niccolò (equivalent of Nicholas and the forename of Machiavelli).

It can also be used on the nonfinal vowels o and e to indicate that the vowel is stressed and that it is open: còrso, "Corsican", vs. córso, "course"/"run", the past participle of "correre". Ò represents the open-mid back rounded vowel /ɔ/ and È represents the open-mid front unrounded vowel /ɛ/.

Emilian-Romagnol[edit]

In Emilian, ò is used to represent [ɔː], e.g. òs [ɔːs] "bone". In Romagnol it is used to represent [ɔ], e.g. piò [pjɔ] "more".

Norwegian[edit]

Ò can be found in the Norwegian word, òg an alternative spelling of også meaning "also". This word is found in both Nynorsk and Bokmål.
