Symbol[edit]

  1. (typography) (A place-holder for combining diacritic marks)

Usage notes[edit]

A diacritic mark will be combined with this symbol to illustrate how it appears relative to a base letter, without requiring a base letter to actually be used. For example, the circumflex accent may be displayed as ⟨◌̂⟩, the Devanagari vowel sign ū as ⟨ ू⟩.

Synonyms[edit]

  • ـ⟩, commonly used to display vowel diacritics for Arabic
