Symbol[edit]

ǁ

  1. (IPA) the forward release of a lateral click.
    (superscript ⟨𐞷⟩) [ǁ]-coloring such as the lateral release of a click (e.g. [𝼊𐞷], a retroflex click with lateral click release); or a weak, fleeting or epenthetic [ǁ]-release.
  2. the tenuis velar or sometimes uvular lateral click, [kǁ] or [qǁ]

Usage notes[edit]

Technically, ⟨ǁ⟩ is only the forward clicked release, not the entire consonant. It is adequate for click sounds without a rear release, such as the tchick! tchick! command to prompt a horse in English. A full transcription of a click consonant requires a second letter to specify whether the rear closure is velar or uvular, and whether the click is voiced or nasal:

Velar Uvular
Voiceless k͜ǁ q͜ǁ
Voiced ɡ͜ǁ ɢ͜ǁ
Nasal ŋ͜ǁ ɴ͜ǁ

The tie bar may be omitted, and the accompanying letter may be superscripted.

If the order is reversed, e.g. ⟨ǁ͜q⟩, that may imply that the velar or uvular release is audible (delayed release).
