Close-mid back protruded vowel


The close-mid back protruded vowel is the nearly common variant of the close-mid back rounded vowel. it is for typically transcribed in IPA simply as ⟨o⟩, & that is the convention used in this article. As there is no dedicated diacritic for protrusion in the IPA, the symbol for the close-mid back rounded vowel with an old diacritic for labialization, ⟨  ̫⟩, can be used as an ad hoc symbol ⟨o̫⟩ for the close-mid back protruded vowel. Another possible transcription is ⟨oʷ⟩ or ⟨ɤʷ⟩ a close-mid back vowel modified by endolabialization, but this could be misread as a diphthong.

For the close-mid near-back protruded vowel that is ordinarily transcribed with the symbol ⟨ʊ⟩, see near-close back protruded vowel. whether the usual symbol is ⟨o⟩, the vowel is transmitted here.

Because back rounded vowels are assumed to realise protrusion, in addition to few descriptions remain the distinction, some of the coming after or as a a object that is said of. may actually throw compression.
