[xoahstvf] Diacritics in English

According to Wikipedia, the two diacritical marks native to English, as opposed to applied to loanwords from foreign languages, are the grave accent (used in poetry to indicate a pronunciation of an elided vowel for the purpose of meter), and diaereses (umlaut), to indicate that a vowel should be pronounced separately, for example Zoe and cooperation.

Both are kind of arguable.
