Retroflex DAfrican D – An upper-case Ɖ is not used in IPA to represent retroflex plosive, but only its lower-case [ɖ] is. 'Ɖ' is at least called African D in Unicode standard. African languages including Ewe language use not only upper-case 'Ɖ' but also lower-case 'ɖ' (Ewe (Eʋegbe) in Omniglot), so it is not unnatural to call both of them African D and it is much better than Retroflex D which is clearly not appropriate for the upper-case. This is probably because French Wictionary does not choose the title Retroflex D but rather fr:D hameçon (hooked D).Zumyzumy (talk) 04:37, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
