What do two dots over an O mean?
In many languages, the letter “ö”, or the “o” modified with an umlaut, is used to denote the non-close front rounded vowels [ø] or [œ]. In languages without such vowels, the character is known as an “o with diaeresis” and denotes a syllable break, wherein its pronunciation remains an unmodified [o].

What does this ä mean?
The short Ä is pronounced like the “e” in the word “bet” in English. It is like saying “eh”. The long Ä on the other hand is simply taking the short one and keeping the sound, so making it longer. It is like saying the “ay” in “say”.
What’s the difference between à and á?
