Graphic variant

Open-mid central rounded vowel

The open-mid central rounded vowel is a type of vowel sound, used in some spoken languages. The symbol in the International Phonetic Alphabet that represents this sound is ɞ, and the equivalent X-SAMPA symbol is 3. The symbol is called closed reversed epsilon.

Due to either a typographic or design error, IPA charts were published with this vowel transcribed as a closed epsilon, <ʚ>, and this graphic variant made its way into Unicode. The form <ɞ> is considered correct.
