I was working on a Chinese to English vocab program, and pinyin (The English alphabet for Chinese) uses diacritics all the time

maybe not a thing that can be used in the code, but in text variables. Having a function in the text variable like "dia" (like flr) or something. If you're having issues imaging what the would look like, here

 Print("Hello W' .. dia("o") .. "rld")


Hello Wòrld

Here's a function that I think will do what you want (you use it by putting the diacritic in front of the letter: ^ is upside-down but the function draws it right-side-up using pset).

function printd(s,x,y,c)
 local f=""
 for i=1,#s do
  local ss=sub(s,i,i)
  local xs=4*#f
  if ss=="'" then
   print(ss,x+xs+1,y-3,c)
  elseif ss=="`" then
   print(ss,x+xs-1,y-3,c)
  elseif ss=="-" then
   print(ss,x+xs,y-4,c)
  elseif ss=="^" then
   pset(x+xs,y-3,c)
   pset(x+xs+1,y-2,c)
   pset(x+xs+2,y-3,c)
  else
   f=f..ss
  end
 end
 print(f,x,y,c)
end

-- here's an example of how to use it
function _draw()
 cls()
 printd("m-a m'a m^a m`a ma",32,64,7)
end
