Punctuation marks and written accents

Punctuation marks and written accents
In Spanish, upside-down punctuation marks
are added to the beginning of a phrase to signal a question or
exclamation. You will continue to use the punctuation at the end of the
sentence or question as well.
¿Qué día es hoy?
¡Hasta luego!
Some words in Spanish have accent marks. An accent mark is a tilted
line placed over a VOWEL. The accent marks tell where the word
should be stressed. Putting accent marks over vowels is part of
spelling the word correctly.
Example: Adiós
A tilde is the wavy line on the letter ñ. The ñ is pronounced similar to
the ny in the word canyon.
Example: señora
