  1. Aav a.k.a. The Austroasiatic languages, in recent classifications synonymous with Mon–Khmer, are a large language family of continental Southeast Asia, also scattered throughout India, Bangladesh, and the southern border of China. The name Austroasiatic comes from the Latin words for "south" and "Asia", hence "South Asia". Among these languages, only Khmer, Vietnamese, and Mon have a long-established recorded history, and only Vietnamese and Khmer have official status. The rest of the languages are spoken by minority groups. Ethnologue identifies 168 Austroasiatic languages. These form thirteen established families, which have traditionally been grouped into two, as Mon–Khmer and Munda. However, one recent classification posits three groups while another has abandoned Mon–Khmer as a taxon altogether, making it synonymous with the larger family.
    • also known as 南亚语系
  2. AAV a.k.a. ANCA-associated vasculitides are diseases caused by vasculitis in which antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies can be detected in the blood.
  3. Aav a.k.a. adeno-associated virus integration site 1 is a gene.
