aa(‚)  aa(‚)
‚ (extended A as in "art")

(‚) is an extended form of (alef or a) that is used only at the beginning of a word; its sound is similar to the letter 'a' in the word "art".


The following example shows the usage of the letter (‚) in the word "‚mrik‚" (America). Note that the first and the last letters sound the same (aa); but since the first 'a' is at the beginning of the word, the letter "aa(‚)" is used instead of the letter "alef".
