pinyin[edit]

I am removing the bit about first tone A. Technically it's correct, but really, a line over anything indicates that it's a first tone. 69.86.189.171 (talk) 17:57, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

Now it says that it's a long A in pinyin, which is just plain wrong. The macron indicates a high level tone and says nothing about the length.213.112.55.89 (talk) 06:38, 21 March 2013 (UTC)

Contradiction?[edit]

The second paragraph says Ā is a separate letter “after A and before B” in Latvian. But the third paragraph says Ā is a “long A” in languages including Latvian. This is unclear and seems contradictory. 03:46, 21 December 2011 (UTC)

It can represent a long A, yet be sorted as an unrelated letter. There is no contradiction. � (talk) 12:49, 24 August 2013 (UTC)
On the other hand, there is another contradiction: we have “comes after A and before B in alphabet” and then “In alphabetical order it is ordered equal with A”. � (talk) 12:52, 24 August 2013 (UTC)
