FUNF Mark....Couldn't get the 2 little dots above the U

3 posts in this topic

In the German language, there are 9 vowels, a e i o u and a-umlaut e-umlaut o umlaut and u-umlaut. An umlaut being two small dots over the vowel emphasising the SPOKEN vowel. In english, the two dots are called diaresis marks, rarely see in the written english language. Years ago, the German coinage had these umlauts, but now uncommon. In english, when a German word is shown, usually an 'e' follows the vowel to express the umlaut, such as the word 'schoen', or 'pretty' in english.
