ਆ ਕਾ - ਕੰਨਾ - Kannaa.


Name: Kannaa
Shape: ਆ ਕਾ
Spelling: ਕੰਨਾ
Drawing: ਆ This is Aerdaa with a kannaa. The kannaa is only half the height of the other letters (between common line and the bottom of the character).

ਕਾ Again, it is only hald the height of the other characters. Be especially careful when using it with a rara ਰ because if you make it too long, it can be confused with a gagga like so - ਰਾ ਗ.

Sound: A long 'ah' as in the last 'a' in 'half'
Duration: long - see note*.
*Note: a long vowel sound has a duration in the order of half a second so it is not that long.
