U with acute (У́ у́; italics: У́ у́) is a letter of the Cyrillic script. In its lowercase forms it looks exactly like the Latin letter Y with acute (Ý ý Ý ý).

Computing codes

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

Usage

⟨У́⟩ and other stressed (accented) vowels are often being used in East Slavic languages like in some words like у́же, тру́сы, в ду́ше, заплачу́, etc.[1]

Words longer than one syllable in these languages carry accents and these are fundamental – accentuated vowels are pronounced with more intensity and do not change their sound within words.[2][3]

These words use sometimes these letters so they can have a more understandable pronunciation are used to make a different meaning.[4][5]
