Tundra Nenets[edit]

Pronunciation[edit]

Letter[edit]

ˮ (transliteration needed)

  1. The thirty-sixth letter of the Tundra Nenets alphabet

Usage notes[edit]

Usually marks instances of the glottal stop /ʔ/ that either do not participate in any alternation, or alternate with the oral stop д /d/, in contrast with the letter ʼ. Often transcribed q in scholarly sources. In some words the letter is silent and is used to indicate word-final consonants that are not followed by an unwritten schwa.
