The Latvian alphabet is based on the Latin alphabet including four letters with diacritical marks: Ā, Č, Ē, and Š. These marks are used to indicate the long vowel sounds of the corresponding letters.
In terms of Latvian orthography, the Latvian language uses a system of spelling and grammar rules to ensure that written Latvian is consistent and easily understandable. These rules specify the correct spelling and punctuation of Latvian words, as well as the correct use of grammar and syntax.
