EtymologyEdit

ع(ʿ) distinguished by a point, written with that sign before the invention of such points (in rasm) because the scribes understood that Arabic /ɣ/ is represented in Nabataean words that are by their lineage related to the Arabic words that have /ɣ/ in them by /ʕ/ written by the Nabataean 𐢗(ʿ), from which the Arabic ع(ʿ) for /ʕ/ descends.
