Lesson 1d - ayin, a (arm)

The fifth uni-literal hieroglyph is called ayin.

It depicts a forearm.

It is equivalent to the Hebrew and Arabic consonant called ayin, a gutteral sound pronounced deep in the throat.

For convenience, it may be pronounced like the a in "father."

The transliteration is a.

In Manuel de Codage, type a small a to represent this sign.
