    En el español escrito se sabe cómo pronunciar las palabras gracias a que llevan o no llevan tilde. Es imposible saber cómo pronunciar una palabra desconocida si no está bien colocada (si la norma la exige) la tilde.
    Si existieran estas tres palabras se leerían de diferente manera: Pájaro, pajaro, pajaró. Aún más: pajáro estaría mal escrita porque las llanas (palabras en las que al hablar el acento cae en la penúltima sílaba) teminadas en vocal, n ó s nunca llevan tilde.
    Resumiendo: No es lo mismo bárbaro que barbaro.

    Please Bluesky, pay attention to the Paco's explanations about the accent in Spanish.
    Most of the Spanish students don't pay attention to the accents, and in Spanish they are mandatory.
    The rules are elsewhere, and are very simple ones.. Please, get used to them
    Another thing: Capital letters in Spanish are only used : at the beginning of a paragraph, after a point, after two points, after question mark, in proper names or names of countries, cities, states, planets, celestial bodies and institutions or organizations, and little more.
    Please, don't write the substantives with capitals. This is OK for German, but not for Spanish.

    qué" pronoun, adverb or adjetive of exclamation or interrogationis (is it correct interrogation jeje? ), then
    the sentences ¡Qué Bárbaro! it could be traslated like ""what the rude!"""
