Variations[edit]

Ɨ̆ ɨ̆
Ɨ̆ ɨ̆

ɨ̆, small barred-i written with a breve, represents a very short close central unrounded vowel. The breve indicates a very short, or overshort vowel.

In the Golin language, ɨ̆ is used in the IPA transcription of the very short high central epenthetic vowel phone, which is restricted to syllables closing with a sonorant.
