Ogonek (Polish for "little tail") is a diacritic hook placed under the lower right corner of a vowel in the Latin alphabet used in Polish, Lithuanian, Navajo and Tutchone. In Polish and Navajo it indicates that the vowel is nasalized (in Tutchone too (?)); in Lithuanian it formerly indicated nasalization but this is no longer distinctive. In Navajo it can be combined with the acute accent.
