How to write lowercase letters
As you can see, when writing lowercase letters, you can use keys on a keyboard.
|Letter||How to type it|
|ú||right from "P"|
|ä||right next to "ú"|
|ô||right from "L"|
|ň||three keys from "L"|
There is a letter, not appeared on a keyboard and you need to type is with combination of keys.
- ď = shift+ ˇ and after press "d"
How to write capital letters
When writing capital letters, you need to use the key ˇ',
where ˇ is written with shift and the key above, and ' is written simply by pressing the key.
- Ň ---> shift + , shift + n
- Á ---> , shift + a
- Ď ---> shift + , shift + d
Exceptions are capital letters Ô and Ä. In usual conversation you will never use those capital letters, as they always appear in the middle of words. However, it is good to know how to type them.
- Ô ---> alt + , shift + o
- Ä ---> alt + the key where "ň" is, shift + a
- Dž is written with only capital D, followed by small letter ž
- Ch is written with only capital C, followed by small letter h
Capital and small letters with the acute mark
- ó ---> followed by o
- ĺ ---> followed by l
- ŕ ---> followed by r
- Ó ---> followed by shift + o
- Ĺ ---> followed by shift + l
- Ŕ ---> followed by shift + r
