The last two are the other way around. (Not least because "dha" is
often unstressed/proclitic but "dâ" is stressed, I suppose?)

Or, conceivably:
ỳ    verbal particle
y    his
ŷ    they

(Though ỳ and ŷ would be unlikely ever to be approved due to font,
keyboard, and encoding issues. Just being silly there.)

I do confess that for the beginning learner, "a" and "y" are sometimes
tricky, trying to figure out whether it's the verbal particle or
something else!
