The A (, called, plurals As, A's, as, a's or aes[ nb 1]) is the first character and the first vocale of the fundamental Roman alphabet according to Isl. 1 ] It resembles the ancient Greeks alphabetic character from which it originates. There are two types of lower case versions: the double-storey a and the single-storey www.a.
A"'s oldest particular forebear is atleph ('aleph), the first character of the Phoenician alphabet, which was composed exclusively of a consonant (which is why it is also referred to as Abiad, to differentiate it from a real alphabet). On the other hand, the forefather of the Alef may have been a pictograph of an oxcapitate heads in proto-sinaitic script, which had been inspired by hieroglyphics in Egypt and was designed as a triangle with two elongated horn heads.
Around 1600 B.C. the Penecian script had a straight line, which was the basis for some later shapes. His name is said to have been in close correspondence with the Arab or Arabian alef. By the time the Greeks adopted the script, they had no use for a character that represented the glotal stroke - the phonetic tone that the character meant in Penician and other semi-Christian tongues, and that was the first phonetic of the Penician spelling of the character - so they used their interpretation of the character to depict the gospel /a/, and named it with the similar name alph.
However, in the ancient Grecian medieval epigraphs that date back to the eighth millennium BC, the character is generally similar to the uppercase letters, although many regional sorts can be differentiated by the abbreviation of a thigh or by the orthocenter.
Etruscans introduced the Grecian script to their civilisation on the Italian peninsula and kept the initial. Later the Romans adopted the etruscans for writing the Roman script, and the resulting character remained in the Roman script, which was to be used for writing many different tongues, as well as English.
The latter gradually evolved from the fifth centennial shape similar to the ancient Grecian letters dew in the arms of mediaeval British and British authors. It was customary in Grecian manuscript to combine the wrong foot and the right line into a sole strap, as shown in the anti-social one. In some other cases, in addition to italics, the font a ("?"), also referred to in Roman alphabet, is used in opposition to the Roman "a" (e.g. in the International Phonetic Alphabet).
?a? has at least seven different vowels: the almost open frontal, non-rounded vowels /æ/ as in Pads; the dipthong /e?/ as in Azé and Maior (usually when a is followed by one or sometimes two consonant letters and then another vowels character at ?a) - this results from the middle-glish extension followed by the large vowels shift;
modificated version of the above tone, which appears in front of ?, as in squares and Maria; the round vowels of the waters; a weak one, in many unaccented symbols, such as commas, sun. 6 ] ?a, however, can be found in many popular digitographs, all with their own unique tones, especially ?ai?, ?au?, ?aw?, ?aw?, ?ay?, ?ea? and ?oa?.
?a? is an open round voice, such as /a/, /ä/ or /?/, in most Roman alphabetic language. Saanich is an exeption, where a (and the Á glyph) represents an unfolded one. Into phonemetic and phonemetic notation: In the International Phonetic Alphabet a is used for the open front round non-rounded vocals ?a, ä for the open centre non-rounded vocals ?ä? and ??? for the open back non-rounded vowels ?a In X-SAMPA ?a? is used for the open front non-rounded vocals and ?A? for the open back non-rounded vowels.
Within alphabetical expressions, the character a is used together with other characters at the beginning of the script for known sizes, while the characters at the end of the script (x, y, z) are used for unfamiliar sizes. phonetic alphabetic symbologies related to A (the International Phonetic alphabet uses only lower case characters, but capitalization is used in some other type systems):
