Alphabet (Alfabeto)
The Galician language uses a writing system modelled on the Spanish version of the Latin alphabet. In the native words are used 23 letters: The letters k, y, j and w appear only in loan words and foreign names.

There are also six digraphs: ch, gu, ll, nh, qu and rr; qu and gu are used only followed by vowels e and i.

As spelling symbols, the acute stress symbol (´) and the diaeresis (¨) are also used.
