Diacritic humor

From the subject line, you don't need to ask, you know it's from the Onion:
Beyoncé to add three more accent marks to name
It's one of the teasers for a non-existent inside article, but I'm guessing Bèyóǹcé.

I think Béÿôncé looks rather elegant, myself. Or how about Bḝyoncḗ, which leaves plenty of room for future expansion by attaching all four diacritics to the two es?

The Ridger, FCD said...

Yes, a great deal depends on whether their "accent mark" can only refer to the acute and grave, or is a more general term for diacritic. If the latter, the possibilities are wide open.

Yeah, I actually pondered stretching a little, to include a circumflex, but q-pheevr has very stylish proposals, esp. the second one.
