é != e
" e " is also conjunction, " é " it is not.
e => E
é => É
è => È
It's true that we use E' for È / É --- the italian keyboard is quite limited ---
and also  e' for è/é  --- it's an error, btw.
" un po' "  (a few)
is correct,
" un pò " is wrong

" perché " (because)
is correct while
" perchè " is wrong as is " perche' "

There are many situations where  the accent make difference
àncora :=anchor
ancóra :=still, again
but,  ahimè, few of us know the rules...
