Hi how would you translate the word "macron" into French? A macron is a long above vowels. If you have Latin in school, maybe you know the word Rōmānus/Rōmāna (means in French: Romain[e]). And you'll find it in Latvian place names, such as Liepāja, Jūrmala etc. You can also use macrons in phonetic transcriptions (IPA), there're ā, ē, ī, ō, ū And how d'ye call it in France? And what about the German ‹ß›? We Germans say ‹Eszett› like s (say es) and z (say zett). E.g. How would you spell it in French: S-t-r-a-ß-e ? (means in French: rue) Please help! ______________ Nobody's perfect — I'm nobody!!!
