 +====== Portuguese ======
 +
 +The Portuguese alphabet contains twenty-four letters, being the same as the English, with the exception of K and W, Which are not in their alphabet. ​
 +
 +The tittle, or little dash, which the Portuguese call til, is set by them over some letters instead of m; as bẽ instead of bem; y convẽ instead of convem; hũa instead of huma. 
 +
 +They also set their til ~ over the vowels ao, aa, in the end of words, thus aõ aã. . 
 +
 +It may be observed that the curved mark ~ is the most perfect, though it is found necessary, in English types, frequently to substitute the plain - instead of the curved. — //​Vieyra'​s Portuguese Grammar, 9th edit//​. ​
