Today, words containing 'u diaeresis' have become more frequent in French, since last fall (2016) a reformed orthography designed as soon
as in 1990 [1] has become valid (though it is not mandatory [2]). Among the novelties, it specifies that words like "to disambiguate" have
the diaeresis shifted from the last 'i' of «désambiguïser» to the 'u' of «désambigüiser».

Kind regards,
