Are there any French words other than _aiguë_ where
an _ë_ is used to indicate that a preceding _u_
is pronounced [y]?
Are there any French words that contain _gg_
pronounced [gZ]. BTW are there any words
with [gZ] at all?
I read that the only words where _à_ is used
are _à là çà_, and _ù_ is used *only* in the
word _où_. Is this correct?
(Thought: French keyboards oughta have a key
for the whole _où_ sequence! :)
