The hiragana character う (u) with a dakuten (゛). The hiragana ゔ, ゕ and ゖ were introduced for hiragana-katakana correspondence with ヴ, ヵ and ヶ in the Japanese input method in Fujitsu OASYS and then registered in JIS X 0213.
ゔ (romaji vu)
- (rare) Alternative form of ヴ with no meaningful usage.
This is a relatively recent addition to kana usage to represent the non-native sound vu. As such, this is only found in borrowed words. All speakers pronounce this as /bu/, [bɯᵝ].
