Context: Collations in SQL Server provide sorting rules, case, and accent sensitivity properties for your data.

From: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/relational-databases/collations/collation-and-unicode-support?view=sql-server-ver15

Research from the same URL above:

Accent-sensitive (_AS)Distinguishes between accented and unaccented characters. For example, "a" is not equal to "ấ". If this option isn't selected, the collation is accent-insensitive. That is, SQL Server considers the accented and unaccented versions of letters to be identical for sorting purposes. You can explicitly select accent insensitivity by specifying _AI.
