Odd Language #14: No English Accent

From Kamloops’s “The Daily News”, Monday, 2013-04-08, p. C5, NEA Puzzles Crossword Puzzle:

27 Down: “Paris pate”, 4 letters

The issue: “pate” is liable to be interpreted as “pâté”. Actually, “pate” without accents (as in “head”) was intended with an answer of “tete” (“tête”). English usually drops accents. Answer confirmed in next day’s issue (Tuesday, 2013-04-09) on p. C5.
