You are more likely to receive helpful responses if you phrase your question as a request rather than as a demand:

If, yes, please give some examples; if not, please explain why.

Are you asking if English uses words with accented characters? No. We have 26 letters in our alphabet and make do with those.

That said, certain words borrowed from other languages may still be represented in some places with those accent marks, but this is not always necessary.

If I ask someone for a copy of their resume, they would surely understand that I meant their résumé.
