Learn Italian Alphabet Letters

The Italian alphabet contains 21 letters of the English Alphabet. The letters j, k, w, x, and y are missing from the Italian alphabet but they do however appear in words burrowed from other languages. Italian Numbers are like English but with a different pronunciation.

The following letters do appear in Italian. They are used mainly in foreign words borrowed from other languages and their pronunciation is based on the word they appear in.

The Italian alphabet uses two diacritical accent marks primarily used on vowels. An incorrect or missing accent mark is a spelling mistake just as an incorrect or missing letter would be.

The Acute Accent can only be included on the vowels e, or o when they end words.

The Grave Accent can be included on all vowels that end words.

To do the Italian accents marks on the non-Italian keyboard. Alt code can be used. Alt code is when you press then hold down the Alt key on your keyboard then type in numbers on your num pad then release the alt key.

Italian Alphabet is very important when it comes to learning to write and read the Italian Language. So make sure to practice pronouncing and writing the Italian Alphabet whenever you can. As many times as you can.
