The use of accents in the Italian language

Hi guys, hope you are well! :smiley:

To fully understand the correct use of accents in the Italian language.
Accents are “grammatical concepts” that allow us to graphically suggest the right intonation to give to words, an increase in vocal intensity aimed at highlighting a particular syllable within a word.

Due to this, we have atonal (unaccented) or tonic (accented) syllables.

The different types of accent :
:arrow_right: ´ acute accent - used in the vowels é, ó with closed sound; (perché - because, so that - affinché).
:arrow_right: ` severe accent - used in the vowels à, è, ì, ò, ù with open sound. (city - città , coffee - caffè).

I hope this helps you!! :crossed_fingers:
