Doesn't Vietnamese use tone marks? (And yes the entry needs cleaning up, I've contacted the user who created the entry about that) —CodeCat 13:47, 15 August 2012 (UTC)

There are a great many marks to differentiate between vowels, but not all the vowels have them. And yes, there are tone marks, but there's one tone that isn't marked.Chuck Entz (talk) 14:04, 15 August 2012 (UTC)
The are 21 Google Books hits for suy hao [1], of which 5 are accidental juxtapositions of other forms of suy or hao. That leaves 16 examples in running Vietnamese speech without the accents. I would say the spelling is citeable. I don't speak Vietnamese, so I can't tell if they support the definition, though. I haven't checked usenet. Chuck Entz (talk) 14:20, 15 August 2012 (UTC)
Ok, I'm retracting my nomination then. Citations would still be nice, of course, but I was mainly worried about the spelling. —CodeCat 16:24, 15 August 2012 (UTC)
