Not to be confused with ք.

(minuscule: ) or "p with stroke" is a letter of the Latin alphabet, formed from P with the addition of a stroke, usually through the bowl but sometimes through the descender. It is used in some phonetic transcription systems, such as the Americanist phonetic notation, to represent a fricative [ɸ].

In 1987 ᵽ was adopted for writing the Tanimuca-Retuarã language, where it represents either a fricative or a stop depending on the dialect.

Encoding[edit]

The minuscule form, U+1D7D latin small letter p with stroke (HTML: ᵽ) was added to Unicode 4.1 in 2005, while the majuscule U+2C63 latin capital letter p with stroke (HTML: Ᵽ) was added to version 5.0 in 2006.

As of 2006, few fonts support either character. Charis SIL and Doulos SIL display only the minuscule.
