What is a diacritical mark?
A diacritical mark is an icon or a symbol that tells us how to pronounce a letter. It is a part of learning to speak and write a new language. The language is becoming familiar with its diacritical marks or accents.
Diacritical marks can be wavy lines, or dots, and they can hover above or below a letter or be attached to it. They’re also known as diacritics or accents.
Diacritical marks are there to show you how a letter sounds when you say it out loud. The word سائِين٘م, for example, includes diacritical marks which tells you how to pronounce the letters having particular signs.
