Ancient Greek

GREEK CAPITAL LETTER PAMPHYLIAN DIGAMMA
͵
[U+0375]
Greek and Coptic ͷ
[U+0377]

Etymology 1

A glyph development from the PhoenicianLua error in Module:debug at line 174: This template is deprecated. Please use {{der}}, {{inh}}, {{bor}}, {{cog}} or {{noncog}}. letter 𐤅(w, waw) in several epichoric alphabets, wherein Ͷ, ͷ (Ͷ, v) denoted the archaic phoneme /w/, which was elsewhere denoted by Ϝ, ϝ (W, w, digamma). In the Pamphylian Greek dialect, /w/ gained the allophone [v]; consequently, Ϝ, ϝ (W, w) was adopted to mark the distinction (albeit inconsistently), with Ͷ, ͷ (Ͷ, v) denoting the original [w] and Ϝ, ϝ (W, w) denoting the novel phone [v].

Pronunciation

  • (Pamphylian, hypothesised) IPA(key): [w]

Letter

Ͷ (Ͷ) (upper case, lower case ͷ)

An alteration of Ϻ, ϻ (Ϻ, ś, san), it occurred in the Arcadocypriot Greek dialect of Mantinea in Arcadia, wherein it is believed that it denoted a reflex of the Proto-Greek phoneme */kʷ/, intermediate between it and the later Arcadocypriot /sː/.

Pronunciation

  • (Arcadocypriot, hypothesised) IPA(key): /t͡sʼ/
