Combining Characters

In this lesson, you’ll learn about digraphs, ligatures, and accent symbols. The Unicode standard allows for the combination of characters into a single glyph. This is used for applying accents to characters and changing the skin tone of an emoji. Some kinds of common digraphs, or letter combinations, have their own code point. Others require the combination of two code points, with one dedicated to the accent symbol.
