aai⟩ is used in Dutch and various Cantonese romanisations to write the sound /aːi̯/.

abh⟩ is used in Irish to write the sound /əu̯/, or in Donegal, /oː/, between broad consonants.

adh⟩ is used in Irish to write the sound /əi̯/, or in Donegal, /eː/, between broad consonants, or an unstressed /ə/ at the end of a word.

aei⟩ is used in Irish to write the sound /eː/ between a broad and a slender consonant.

agh⟩ is used in Irish to write the sound /əi̯/, or in Donegal, /eː/, between broad consonants.

aim⟩ is used in French to write the sound /ɛ̃/ (/ɛm/ before a vowel).

ain⟩ is used in French to write the sound /ɛ̃/ (/ɛn/ before a vowel). It also represents /ɛ̃/ in Tibetan Pinyin, where it is alternatively written än.

aío⟩ is used in Irish to write the sound /iː/ between broad consonants.

amh⟩ is used in Irish to write the sound /əu̯/, or in Donegal, /oː/, between broad consonants.

aoi⟩ is used in Irish to write the sound /iː/ between a broad and a slender consonant.

aon⟩ is used in French to write the sound /ɑ̃/ (/ɑn/ before a vowel).

aoû⟩ is used in a few words in French to write the sound /u/.

aqh⟩ is used in the practical orthography of the Taa language, where it represents the strident vowel /a᷽/. (If this symbol does not display properly, it is an ⟨a⟩ with a double tilde ⟨≈⟩ underneath.)

aye⟩ in English aye-aye[was this entry intended for something else?]

bhf⟩ is used in Irish, like the digraph bh, to write the sounds /w/ and /vʲ/.

cʼh⟩ is used in Breton in order to represent the [x] sound (a voiceless velar fricative). It should not be confused with ch, which represents in Breton the [ʃ] sound (a voiceless postalveolar fricative).

ccs⟩ is a long Hungarian ⟨cs⟩, [tʃː]. It is collated as ⟨cs⟩ rather than as ⟨c⟩. It is only used within roots; when two ⟨cs⟩ are brought together in a compound word, they form the regular sequence ⟨cscs⟩.

chd⟩ is used in Eskayan romanised orthography for the sound /dʒ/ (English "j").

chh⟩ is used in Quechua and romanizations of Indic languages to write the sound /tʃʰ/.

chj⟩ is used in Corsican to write the sound /c/.
