The Bathmoceratidae are largely straight shells of Whiterock age, first known from the Šarka (pronounced Sharka from a hatchek over the Š) the Kunda of the Baltic, the Llanvirn apron of Wales, and more recently from northwestern China, […]
A professor here wants to use the Times hatchek over the letters z, s, and c. Is there any way (we’re using Word 3.x) to place the hatchek over these letters?

Note that Hus originally used dots as diacritic marks (as did the Hungarian Bible translators), the “Hatchek” (ˇ as in č, š, etc.) was introduced in the Czech spelling only in the 16th century.
[…] ‘hatchek’ as diacritic to mark ‘softness’ though followed by ‘soft’ e,i which make the diacritic redundant; they also wrote the diphthong ô as uo, etc.).

High tones are marked throughout with an acute accent in addition to the low tones that are customarily marked in the traditional orthography with a grave accent. The hatchek marks a rising tone.
