The aytham in Tamil is a glottaliser. (Aytham ஃ)
Alphabet in Tamil, contrary to all other languages, is the name for places of articulation. I think that is what IPA also defines alphabet as.
and aytham is the third dimensional glottaliser, doing functions such as ...
"loosely explained q-ising!, h-ising!, etc...
Aytham takes the form of consonants and vowels, but in third dimension, and modifies the two dimensional results in various forms.
