A with diaeresis (Cyrillic)

A with diaeresis (Ӓ ӓ; italics: Ӓ ӓ) is a letter of the Cyrillic script used in the Khanty, Kildin Sami, and Mari languages. Also, this letter was once used in the Gagauz language (surrogate's АЬ).

Usage

In Mari, and Gagauz language 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 language this letter represents the near-open central vowel /ɐ/.

Some languages represent as /ja/, like in letter "Я".
