Ã (lower case ã)
- The letter A with a tilde.
From Old Portuguese Ã, Ā, Ȧ; originally A with a superscript N.
- IPA(key): /ɐ̃/
- When Ã occurs word-finally in a word without an acute or circumflex diacritic (as in maçã), the last syllable is stressed.
Ã (upper case, lower case ã)
- the letter A with a tilde
Ã never occurs initially, so the capital form is only used in words written completely uppercase.
