The following are examples of combining diacritics. If the diacritic is not perfectly centered, this is normal. That is because combining diacriticals are designed with the "character" far to the left so it will appear on top of the preceding character. But not all characters are of equal width, so they frequently appear a slight bit off center. In the following section for each character there is a regular letter followed by the combining diacritical.

b̤   breathy voice b

t̪   dental t

s̬   voiced s

o̹   more rounded o

o̜   less rounded o

u̟   advanced u

ë   centralized e

e̽   mid-centralized d

e̝   raised e
