Usage notesModificar
  • This adjectival sense of this word is sometimes written markèd, with a grave accent. This is meant to indicate that the second e is pronounced as /ɪ/, rather than being silent, as in the verb form. This usage is largely restricted to poetry and other works in which it is important that the adjective’s disyllabicity be made explicit.
