The word Passage (a movement in dressage) has a different meaning and pronunciation to the word Passage (taking a trip or tunnel).

Can this pronunciation difference be highlighted by use of a French accent mark?

    @Toto: I think the OP refers to the English pronunciation. – Stéphane Gimenez Jan 8 '19 at 15:33

    Welcome to the site, is that horseback riding or dogs or what? Thank you! – user3177 Jan 8 '19 at 23:57

    There aren't any accent marks on passage in French. So, no. – Peter Shor Jan 9 '19 at 0:57

In French, every instance of "passage" has the exact same pronunciation. There are more than two.

You can't write accents in French if they're not initially part of the word - it's a spelling error.

In French, both meanings of the word passage you're referring to are written and pronunciated identically.
