Usage

⟨А̀⟩ is are often used in South Slavic languages, where it's used for accents on the vowels. The mark is commonly used in them to differentiate homophones, such as па̀ра ("steam ") and пара̀ ("cent"), въ̀лна ("wool") and вълна̀ ("wave"). [1]

Stress marks are optional and are regularly used in several special books like dictionaries, primers, or textbooks for foreigners, as stress is very unpredictable in all of these. However, in general texts, stress marks are rarely used. Mainly to prevent ambiguity or to show the pronunciation of foreign words.[2]

Bulgarian

This is in the larger part in Bulgarian and is also the accent used in the Standard Bulgarian language. Because it existed in the past in all Bulgarian dialects, it can be called dynamic accent. Its characteristics of it are highly similar as those in the accent of the other south-eastern Slavic languages [3][4]
