Gha


Gha

The letter unicode|Ƣ (minuscule: unicode|ƣ) is a letter that has been used in various Latin orthographies for Turkic languages, such as Azeri or the Jaŋalif orthography for Tatar. It usually represents a voiced velar fricative, but is sometimes used for a voiced uvular fricative. All orthographies using it have been phased out, so the letter is not well-supported in fonts. It can still be seen on pre-1983 banknotes issued by the People's Republic of Chinacitation.

In alphabetical order, it comes between G and H.

Unicode

In Unicode, the majuscule unicode|Ƣ is encoded in the Latin Extended-B block at U+01A2 and the minuscule unicode|ƣ is encoded at U+01A3. It has been misnamed by ISO as "LATIN LETTER OI", although it is typographically based on Q.
