    Are there any languages that use letters with diacriticals, but *never*
    use the base letter without diacriticals? A made-up example to explain
    what made me think of it: Let's say a language has "", to represent the
    same sound that it does in German, but not "o", because the language
    lacks the sound represented by that letter in common European languages
    (the alternative being to use "o" to represent the "" sound).
