Noun[edit]

trema (plural tremata)

  1. a diacritic consisting of two dots ( ¨ ) placed over a letter, used among other things to indicate umlaut or diaeresis.
    The Trema is a diacritic that I have to add to the letter like an accent. So to catalog correctly your system has to offer you Trema and Umlaut. — Donald Pisani, [1]
    If the tone is not falling, then a macron or trema is written above the vowel: màtö. — Rob Nierse, [2]
