ᵷ or turned g is a letter of the Latin alphabet, formed by rotating g 180°. It is used to transliterate the Georgian letter ჹ. ჹ itself is the Georgian letter გ "g" rotated. It represents a [ɢ] in some East Caucasian languages.
A rotated capital G has sometimes been used as a substitute for the similar-looking eng [ŋ]. It is encoded at U+2141 but is very rarely supported, absent in most fonts, including those with significant Unicode coverage. Everson Mono and Fixedsys Excelsior are among only a handful of fonts that supports it.
ᵷ was added to Unicode 4.1 in 2005, as U+1D77. Fonts that can display the character include Code2000, Doulos SIL and Charis SIL. Lowercase "B with hook," an IPA letter that resembles a turned one-story g, is more widely available as a substitute, at U+0253.
