Usage notes [ edit ]
This is usually used in two situations:
When an affix or clitic varies between using the diphthongs
⟨ ай ⟩, ⟨ ой ⟩ and ⟨ эй ⟩, which occurs due to the fact that ⟨ өй ⟩ is not used in Mongolian (with ⟨ эй ⟩ being used where it would otherwise occur). When an affix or clitic varies between using the iotated vowels ⟨ я ⟩, ⟨ ё ⟩ and ⟨ е ⟩, as ⟨ е ⟩ is used in both ө-harmonic and э-harmonic terms.
