Symbol[edit]

ʘ

  1. (IPA) the forward release of a bilabial click.
    (superscript ⟨𐞵⟩) [ʘ]-coloring or a weak, fleeting or epenthetic [ʘ]-release.
  2. the tenuis velar or sometimes uvular bilabial click, [kʘ] or [qʘ]

Usage notes[edit]

Technically, ⟨ʘ⟩ is only the forward clicked release, not the entire consonant. 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 k͜ʘ q͜ʘ
Voiced ɡ͜ʘ ɢ͜ʘ
Nasal ŋ͜ʘ ɴ͜ʘ

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

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