When that letter is an i or a j, the diacritic replaces the tittle: ï. The same symbol is also used as a diacritic in other cases, distinct from both diaeresis and umlaut. For example, in Albanian, ë represents a schwa. The word diaeresis is from Ancient Greek: διαίρεσις, meaning division, separation, distinction.
