Now, I feel there is some thing wrong here, (`) is not an accent (despite it misleading Unicode name), but rather a spacing character, so typing n` to get ǹ is wrong; you should use (̀ ) instead (this is U+0300), since the later is the combining grave accent while the former is a spacing character.
