- Ash, the second letter of the Old English (Anglo-Saxon) alphabet.
- A ligature of a and e, usually found in words of Greek origin, though Latin is not uncommon. In U. S. English, this is usually, though not always, replaced with e when it has the sound /ɛ/ (SAMPA /E/) or /iː/ (SAMPA /i:/), but not when it makes a different sound, as in formulæ. When æ marks the plural of words ending in -a, it is always written either as the ligature or as two letters, ae.

- IPA: /æː/
- law, scripture
- God is wisdom and æ woruldbuendra. God is the wisdom and law of world-dwellers.
