Usage notes

edit

(obsolete IPA): The mark is placed before the word or syllable that bears the tone. This use of the symbol has effectively been replaced by Chao tone letters and tone diacritics.

(Scandinavian): Illustrated in the 1921 IPA guide. It is one of several ad hoc symbols that have been used, as the IPA has no single symbol to mark this tone.
