Czech Orthography

Czech orthography is a system of rules for correct writing (orthography) in the Czech language.

The Czech orthographic system is diacritic. The háček is added to standard Latin letters for expressing sounds which are foreign to the Latin language (but some digraphs have been kept - ch, dž). The acute accent is used for long vowels.

The Czech orthography is considered the model for all other Slavic languages using the Latin alphabet save Polish; the Slovenian and Slovak orthographies as well as Gaj's Latin Alphabet are all based on the Czech.
