Łingít Keyboard Help

Start Using Łingít

This keyboard is designed for the Łingít language of the Western Subarctic region of Canada.

If square boxes are displayed instead of characters when using this keyboard (and in the keyboard layouts below), please read our troubleshooting guide.

Desktop Layout

  • Underline mark (macron) can be typed with the / key. Always type the underline, do not use your computer's underline formatting!
    • G̱ = G then / (slash)
  • Combining accents/tone marks are located on the ; [ ` keys. Type an accent after a vowel to add it on the vowel. If you've typed the wrong accent, just type the correct accent to replace it.
    • Á = A then ; (semicolon)
    • À = A then ` (backquote)
    • Â = A then [ (left bracket)
  • Nasal symbol (ogonek) is located on the \ key. Type this after a vowel to add it on the vowel.
    • Ą = A then \ (backslash)
  • Nasal + accent/tone can be typed by combining these two steps, or as a shortcut by pressing SHIFT when adding the accent/tone mark.
    • Ą́ = A then SHIFT + : (colon)
    • Ą̀ = A then SHIFT + ~ (tilde)
    • Ą̂ = A then SHIFT + { (left curly bracket)
  • By holding the ALT key, you can return to the standard US English keyboard value of any modified key (such as / (slash)).
