Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Italian alphabet is a variant of the Latin alphabet used by the Italian language.The Italian alphabet has five vowel letters, a e i o u . Of those, only a represents one sound value while each of the others has two. In addition, e and i indicate a different pronunciation of a preceding c or g (see below). In stressed syllables, e represents both open / / and close /e/. Similarly, o represents both open / / and close /o/ (see the Italian phonology for further details on these sounds). There is typically no orthographic distinction between the open and closed sounds represented, though accent marks are used in certain instances (see below). In unstressed syllables, only the close variants occur except before sonorants..show more
