Any rules when you write я or іа after ц?

    Well, techically this reflects the pronunciation: /tsʲa/ vs. /tsʲia/. In fast speech, they may sound the same, but in careful pronunciation they should be distinguished.

    But «я» is much more common than «іа». «Іа» is mostly found in foreign words.
