DESCRIPTION: Here is a one-page flow chart for determining whether or not a word carries a written accent or not in Spanish. The first page is the hand-out meant to be given to students, and the following pages show the thinking process that students would follow in taking a word and determining whether or not to write an accent.
BEST AUDIENCE: High-intermediate or advanced students. Native speakers.
PREREQUISITES: Assumes coverage of basic division of syllables and defining “aguda”, “llana”, and “esdrújula”.
DISCLAIMERS: The list of diacritic words is not exhaustive, but does include frequent ones. Also, I intend to brainstorm a way to account for splitting dipthongs into this chart ("dia", "entendia"). Let me know if you think of any sample words in Spanish that would not be covered by this flow chart!
