Belarusian[edit]

Letter[edit]

ґ (g) (uppercase Ґ) (italics: Ґ, ґ)

  1. An alternative rare letter of the Belarusian Cyrillic alphabet. Its name is ґе (ge /ɡɛ/) and it has the sound of /g/ - voiced velar plosive. If included, it is preceded by Г and followed by Д. In modern Belarusian this letter is rarely included.

Usage notes[edit]

  • The sound /ɡ/ is very uncommon in Belarusian, even in loanwords. It is common to pronounce /ɣ/ (or /x/ in devoiced positions) regardless of etymology.
