Ā is the second letter of the northeadish standard literary alphabet. Its phœnetic value is [a:]. Its eastheadish equivalent is a, the first letter of the eastheadish alphabet, as eastheadish does not differentiate between long and short vowels. Northeadish Ā normally comes from ProtoGermanic /ē/ as a result of the ē→ā change, or from /anh/ due to the ŋ-deletion rule. It has an i-mutation of ǣ.
