I always have trouble when and where to put accents over which letters. Are there any tricks to knowing, or is it word by word knowledge?

Unlike in e.g. French or Spanish, åäö aren't just aao with accents - they're letters in their own right, and just as different from aao as eiu would be. So with the exception of a few rare cases where the change is derived from very old spelling rules, it's always word by word.

(For reference, there are a few loanwords from French that are spelt with an é. This é is not a letter in its own right.)

Is "frukt" uncountable as a "fruit" in English? In what cases I can use "frukter"?
