For Mac users, RIGHT-ALT is either of the Option Keys

  • The SHIFT-6 key is the optional acute accent ´
  • The SEMICOLON key is the underline accent, as in a̱ ḵ g̱ x̱. The a̱ ḵ g̱ x̱ letters can also be typed RIGHT-ALT A, RIGHT-ALT K, RIGHT-ALT G, and RIGHT-ALT X respectively.
  • The combining glottal apostrophe accent is the SLASH key, as in k̓ t̓ p̓...
  • When a glottal apostrophe appears over a digraph, like kw, ḵw, ts, and tł, use the RIGHT-BRACKET ] key so that the accent is placed between both letters, as in: k̕w, ḵ̕w, t̕s, t̕ł.
  • Be sure to turn of “Smart Quotes” in your word processor if you do not want the glottal stop ' to appear curly.
  • All changed punctuation can type their original value by holding down the RIGHT-ALT key. The left bracket [ would then be typed RIGHT-ALT+LEFT BRACKET.
  • Opening and closing quotes:
    • single: ‘ GRAVE — ’ SHIFT+RIGHT-BRACKET
    • double: “ SHIFT+HYPHEN — ” SHIFT+EQUALS
    • single ‹ RIGHT-ALT+SHIFT+9 — › RIGHT-ALT+SHIFT+0
    • double « RIGHT-ALT+9 — » RIGHT-ALT+0
