◌̃

  1. A diacritical mark of the Latin script, called dấu ngã (tumbling mark) in Vietnamese, and found on Ã/ã, /, /, /, /, Ĩ/ĩ, Õ/õ, /, /, Ũ/ũ, / and /. Used to indicate mid-rising, glottalized tone.

Usage notes

edit

In some dialects of Vietnamese, particularly Saigonese, the mid-rising, glottalized tone is conflated with the mid falling-rising, harsh tone represented by ̉. Therefore, speakers of Saigonese often use ̉ in words that are spelled with a tilde in standard written Vietnamese.

In Vietnamese handwriting and signmaking, the letter I/i retains its tittle.

In Vietnamese handwriting, when the tilde is combined with the circumflex, the tilde's left side may be omitted and its right side curled.
