I with acute (И́ и́; italics: И́ и́) is a letter of the Cyrillic script. Its form is derived from the Cyrillic letter I (И и И и).

Computing codes

Being a relatively recent letter, not present in any legacy 8-bit Cyrillic encoding, the letter И́ is not represented directly by a precomposed character in Unicode either; it has to be composed as И+◌́ (U+0301).

Usage

⟨И́⟩ can be found mainly in the East Slavic languages as a stressed variants of ⟨и⟩, like Russian ви́ски ('whiskey'), виски́ ('temples'), пироги́ ('pies'), and пи́сать ('to pee').[1]

Stress marks are fundamental and used in some special books like dictionaries, primers, or textbooks for foreigners, as stress is very unpredictable in all of these languages. However, in general texts, stress marks are rarely used, mainly to prevent ambiguity or to show the pronunciation of foreign words.[2][3]

⟨И́⟩ and other stressed (accented) vowels is needed in these languages to change the meaning and pronunciation of the words.[4][5]
