IgnoreDiacritics

IgnoreDiacritics

is an option for string, grammar, and related functions that specifies whether diacritics should be ignored in strings.

Details

  • In grammar functions, IgnoreDiacritics->True specifies that simple transformations such as adding or removing diacritics should automatically be made in attempting to apply grammar rules.
  • In string functions such as AlphabeticSort, IgnoreDiacritics->True ignores diacritics only on characters that do not appear in the base alphabet of the language used.
