ɒ ɒ ɒ ˋ ā ŋ
อ • (ɔɔ)
- This letter belongs to the Thai mid-consonant class
- อ is a special case in that at the beginning of a word it is used as a silent initial for syllables that start with a vowel (all vowels are written relative to a consonant). The same symbol is used as a vowel in non-initial position.
