ɧ

  1. (IPA) the Swedish sj sound, variously interpreted.
  2. (superscript ⟨𐞗⟩, IPA, rare) [ɧ]-fricated release of a plosive, [ɧ]-coloring, or a weak, fleeting or epenthetic [ɧ].
    Some second language learners have difficulties separating [f] from [ɧᶠ]. [] Thus, there is then no need, at this point, to introduce another IPA symbol [f𐞗].

Usage notes edit

The IPA describes the sound as simultaneous [ʃ] and [x], but according to Peter Ladefoged, former President of the IPA, such a sound would be practically impossible. The actual nature of the sound is debated, and also varies by dialect; the letter ⟨ɧ⟩ may be used regardless of the precise sound being transcribed.
