alt 666 isn't a code that brings up ü in Microsoft Word. it brings it up on a google browser. Deleted. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:46, 9 April 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]


  • I noticed that the article U-umlaut redirects to this site. However, I'm not sure it should, since U-Umlaut is a phonological feature of North Germanic languages, especially Faroese and Icelandic. Similarly to the I-umlaut, the U-umlaut has its origin in a final -u that pulled the preceding stem vowel towards itself, while itself was being eliminated. Example:

Proto-Norse: *landu (countries), Old Norse: lǫnd, Faroese: lond/Icelandic: lönd Proto-Norse: *barnu (children), Old Norse: bǫrn, Faroese: børn/Icelandic: börn

It's not found in Swedish (probably not in Norwegian either), but there are traces of it in Danish: child = barn, children = børn (compare with Swedish barn, barn).

So this probably should be changed. Mulder1982 (talk) 00:37, 7 December 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Article rendered pointlessEdit

Came here looking for pronunciation help and found none. Even worse, came to this discussion page and found some know-it-all has deliberately removed the pronunciation stuff. I'm willing to bet 90% of people visiting this page came here to learn how to pronounce it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Garygateaux (talkcontribs) 13:32, 6 January 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I noticed Ö is mentioned that it resembles a face and is used as an emoticon. Ü also resembles a face and is occasionally used as an emoticon. Should that be mentioned? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:33, 14 January 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
