  1. (formal) A grave accent or baria as a spacing character.

Usage notesEdit

The use of spacing character diacritics is generally archaic outside of pedagogical contexts.

The Unicode code point U+1FEF (GREEK VARIA) is canonically equivalent to U+0060 (GRAVE ACCENT), while U+FF40 is a fullwidth character for use in East Asian typography.

Not to be confused with an acute accent: ´.

Punctuation markEdit

  1. (computing) A backquote or backtick, which, like a quotation mark, encloses text.
  2. (nonstandard, Internet) An apostrophe (')
