I temporarily forgot the ideogrammically written languages, the other
system. But are you saying that diacritical marks go with phonetically
written languages? That makes sense--if you write a word without using a
phonetic alphabet, then you don't have a way to spell the phonetic
sounds of the word, you have a way to represent the idea of the word, in
a stylized form.
