That's correct. 'A@' is used for START words (words typically spelled with 'ar'), while 'A:' is used for PALM words. These are documented at https://github.com/espeak-ng/espeak-ng/blob/master/docs/languages/gmw/en.md

Yeah, that's the word alright, but I can't figure out how to read the

but if anyone has the capability to figure it out, it may lead to
