The letters ё, ъ, ы, ѣ, and э have not been used in Ukrainian since the early 1920s, but may appear in etymologies, attested words, and quotations.

Stress[edit]

Syllabic stress can be indicated by an acute accent (´) over the main component of the vowel:

  • Roman: Á, É, Jé, Ý, Í, Jí, Ó, Ú, Jú, Já, á, é, jé, ý, í, jí, ó, ú, jú, já
  • Cyrillic: А́, Е́, Є́, И́, І́, Ї́, О́, У́, Ю́, Я́, а́, е́, є́, и́, і́, ї́, о́, у́, ю́, я́

Variable stress can be indicated by an accent in each possible place: апо́стро́ф (apóstróf).

Background[edit]

Other common systems for Ukrainian are the Library of Congress system (ALA-LC), used in libraries and bibliographies, its simplified form found in the main text of many publications, the British Standard used in older British publications, BGN/PCGN in older atlases, and the Ukrainian National system, which has been adopted by the UN. Some of these are described in Appendix:Ukrainian alphabet.
