Letter[edit]

ـٰ ()

  1. superscript alif, dagger alif (أَلِف خَنْجَرِيَّة (ʾalif ḵanjariyya)), indicates a long /aː/ where ا (ʾalif) is normally not written.

Usage notes[edit]

  • ʾalif ḵanjariyya is a rare diacritic, is missing on standard keyboards and is sometimes replaced with a fatḥa ـَ (-a) in a vocalised Arabic text.
