Etymology: Eretiǹgrai AI, from the same letter in Mižinai.

The 30th letter of the T́uliǹgrai alphabet is a diphthong, the letters A and I pronounced so closely together that there's no audible break between them.

AI is pronounced like the "long I" in English, like AE in Latin, or AY or AI in Spanish. Its name is ai (informal) and eairetai (formal).

(2) Placed before the last of three or more nouns, it works the same way: Juhai, Vîd́ai, ais Pâtai eilavi zunaotad, Juho, Vîd́a, and Pâta enjoy running. (3) It can be appended to the second of two nouns: Kristi Samiais tlazuzîvan ailenyr. I saw Kristu and Samo yesterday. (4) When used twice, once before each item of a pair of nouns, AIS… A AIS… B means "Both A and B". Ais Kaθai ais Susai zunukid, both Kaθa and Suso are asleep (conjunctional particle).
