Double acute accent

Double acute accent is a diacritic mark used in written Hungarian.

Hungarian has seven short vowels (a, e, i, o, u, , ) including the front unrounded vowels ö and ü. The long equivalents of the first five are written with the acute accent (, , , , ). (The accented a and e is not really just a longer version but articulated differently.)

The double acute acts as combined acute with umlaut, giving the longer version of and .

The codes are supported in the ISO 8859-2 and UTF-8 codepages, the letters are: ő (U0151 LATIN SMALL LETTER O WITH DOUBLE ACUTE), ű (U0171 LATIN SMALL LETTER U WITH DOUBLE ACUTE), Ő (U0150, LATIN CAPITAL LETTER O WITH DOUBLE ACUTE) and Ű (U0170 LATIN CAPITAL LETTER U WITH DOUBLE ACUTE).
