I would like to write this name that have an inverse circumflex above letter c: enter image description here

I have found the command \check{c}, but it is in math mode. I want to find something equivalent but in text mode, to make no difference with the other letter/words of the text. (Using \check{c}, I get this: enter image description here)

Thank you!

  • the symbol is called a hacek, or, more properly, a ha\v{c}ek. Jun 19, 2012 at 12:20

The accent command here is \v, so you want Ku\v{c}inskas. You could of course use UTF-8 input and either inputenc with pdfLaTeX or a UTF-8 capable engine (XeLaTeX/LuaLaTeX).

    Table 17 in the Comprehensive List lists the main accents available.
