Etymology[edit]

From Old Portuguese Ã, Ā, Ȧ; originally A with a superscript N.

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ɐ̃/
  • When à occurs word-finally in a word without an acute or circumflex diacritic (as in maçã), the last syllable is stressed.

Usage notes[edit]

à never occurs initially, so the capital form is only used in words written completely uppercase.
