A with diaeresis (Ӓ ӓ; italics: Ӓ ӓ) is a letter of the Cyrillic script used in the Khanty, Kildin Sami, and Hill Mari languages. Also, this letter was once used in the Gagauz language (which was substituted with ⟨аь⟩).

Usage

In Hill Mari and Gagauz this letter represents the near-open front unrounded vowel, /æ/.

In Kildin Sami this letter represents the open back unrounded vowel /a/ following a palatalized (sometimes also called "half-palatalized") velar nasal /nʲ/ or one of the alveolar stops /tʲ/ or /dʲ/.

In Khanty this letter represents the near-open central vowel /ɐ/.

Some languages represent as /ja/, like in letter "Я".[example needed]
