Browse by code chart: PUA-16

The Unicode Standard v. 5.1 has acute accent over the vowels ‘A’, ‘a’, ‘E’, ‘e’, ‘I’, ‘i’, ‘O’, ‘o’, ‘U’, ‘u’, ‘Y’ and ‘y’ in Latin-1 Supplement and over ‘Æ’, ‘æ’, ‘Ø’ and ‘ø’ in Latin Extended-B. Many consonants also appear with acute accent, such as ‘C’, ‘c’, ‘L’, ‘l’, ‘N’, ‘n’, ‘R’, ‘r’, ‘S’, ‘s’, ‘Z’ and ‘z’ in Latin Extended-A, ‘G’ and ‘g’ in Latin Extended-B, and ‘K’, ‘k’, ‘M’, ‘m’, ‘P’, ‘p’, ‘W’ and ‘w’ in Latin Extended Additional. This subrange contains additional characters with acute accent. The Unicode Standard advises encoding characters of this type as a sequence of the baseline character and the COMBINING ACUTE ACCENT (0301), and this way of encoding has been given as an alternative for each character below. Combinations of consonants and the acute accent are rare in Medieval sources but attested examples have been included in the present recommendation.
