Missed accent marks cause higher repeat of certain words?

Correct me if I am wrong, but getting a word incorrect or peeking at it will cause duolingo to give you those words more often.

Does that then also apply to words with missed accents on some letters? I would understand if it does, given a change in accent could mean another word.

In either case, would it be useful to have hotkeys for entering accents, or do those already exist?

We do not repeat words mor often if you miss accents.


this would be rather annoying, especially on the mobile apps. For instance my keyboard doesn't even allow me to enter the accents for é or è. So penalizing these wouldn't help me remember them.
