    Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. If an accent mark is required and it is not there, it is NOT correct!

    #3 Les pièces must have the accent grave and it is feminine = merveilleuses

    #4 What is poixxons? Could you mean "les poissons = fish?" La poix is "pitch."

    #5 An accent is required on épais. Actually, if you understand why there are 3 "e's" it easy to know when an accent is required.
    e = uh
    é = a (as in first letter of English alphabet)
    è = eh
    Consider a word with all 3 accent marks and the pronunciation = élève

    #7 garçons (accent)

    If you don't know how to make accent marks with the computer, you need to learn. There is a chart I can send you but I need to know:
    1. do you have PC or a MAC
    2. do you have Windows or not?

    In Main/Control Panel, open International.
    Change Keyboard to US International
    ok,ok,ok,ok etc. Reboot and you're all set. I have personally done this and it works for me just fine... Dawn

    á (accentuated a)= apostrophe and then a
    é (accentuated e) = apostrophe and then e
    í (accentuated i) = apostrophe and then i
    ó (accentuated o) = apostrophe and then oSpanish, PC, Windows98
    ú (accentuated u) = apostrophe and then u
    ü (daeresis u) = shift+apostrophe and then u

    ¡ = ctrl+alt+1 (in some programs left alt+0161)
