What's the new squiggle on top of the A letter?

The new consonant that kind of looks like a backwards 2 or c is called hamza. It signifies a glottal stop. In the alphabet sections of our lessons, it is transliterated with a "2". In some transliterations, an apostrophe ' is used to signify a glottal stop.
