- ਙੱਙਾ - ngangaa - tenth letter of the Gurmukhi alphabet.


Name: ngangaa
Shape:
Spelling: ਙੱਙਾ
Sound: 'ng' as the 'ng' at the end of the word 'sing' when you say it out aloud.
Type: Consonant

Mouth: hold your mouth in exactly the same way that you would if you were saying the sound of the Roman alphabet letters 'ng' as in the 'ng' at the end of the word 'sing'. Have your soft palette allow air to pass into your nose as you would when saying the letter 'n' in 'sing' - ie, the back of your tongue is in contact with the roof of your mouth rather than the front of your tongue.
Tongue: Curved so that the middle of your tongue touches the top of your mouth roughly where your soft palette meats your hard palette.
Soft Palette: Allowing air to pass into your nose
Lips: apart
Vocal Chords: Used
Aspirated: No

Ngangaa ('ਙ') can also be confused with jhijhaa ('ਝ') when you start out but this soon goes as well.
Ngangaa ('ਙ') can also be confused with kakkaa ('ਕ') but remember that ਙ starts off at the left at the top.
Writing: Ngangaa ('ਙ') be confused with phaphaa ('ਫ') when you start out. With writing, it takes a little longer to iron this one out but it happens.
