Money makes the world go round, as they say… but HOW, exactly? Award-winning graphic novelist Eddie Campbell (From Hell, Alec) presents a fascinating journey into the wilderness of personal finance. With his trademark blend of research, anecdote, autobiography, and fantasy, Campbell explores how money underwrites human relationships, flowing all around us like the air we breathe — or the water we drown in. The result is a whimsical graphic essay, deeply grounded in Eddie’s personal experiences with "the lovely horrible stuff," ranging from the imaginary wealth of Ponzi schemes and television pilots to the all-too-tangible stone currency of the Micronesian island of Yap. In a world where drawing corporate superheroes requires literally transforming oneself into a corporation (which is kept in a shoebox under the bed), we are in strange territory indeed. Fortunately, Campbell’s wry eye and vivid full-color artwork imbue the proceedings with real humanity, making The Lovely Horrible Stuff an investment that’s worth every penny.

Diacritic is primarily an adjective, though sometimes used as a noun, whereas diacritical is only ever an adjective. The main use of diacritical marks in the Latin script is to change the sound-values of the letters to which they are added. In Gaelic type, a dot over a consonant indicates lenition of the consonant in question. In other alphabetic systems, diacritical marks may perform other functions. Greek diacritical marks, which showed that letters of the alphabet were being used as numerals.

This varies from language to language, and may vary from case to case within a language. In some cases, letters are used as „in-line diacritics“, with the same function as ancillary glyphs, in that they modify the sound of the letter preceding them, as in the case of the „h“ in the English pronunciation of „sh“ and „th“. The tilde, dot, comma, titlo, apostrophe, bar, and colon are sometimes diacritical marks, but also have other uses. Not all diacritics occur adjacent to the letter they modify.

In the Wali language of Ghana, for example, an apostrophe indicates a change of vowel quality, but occurs at the beginning of the word, as in the dialects ’Bulengee and ’Dolimi. Because of vowel harmony, all vowels in a word are affected, so the scope of the diacritic is the entire word. The j, originally a variant of i, inherited the tittle. Serve a grammatical role in Arabic.
