1. What is the difference, if any, between the tag and the tag ?

  2. If a question is correctly tagged with , then is the tag actually superfluous?

1 Answer 1


1 diacritics are broader in concept than accents but most diacritics in Spanish are accents.

2 accentuation is a proper subset of orthography but it does little harm to include it.

  • yup, and "acentuación" is applied towards pronunciation , while the "diacriticos" are the actual position of the orthographic mark. You can have a "diacriticos" because you might not know if the accent has to be marked, or you might have an "accentuation" question because you don't know the right pronunciation.
