ڳ, (Arabic letter gueh (U+06B3)), is an additional letter of the Arabic script,[1] not used in the Arabic alphabet itself but used in Saraiki to represent a voiced velar implosive, [ɠ]. It is written as in Saraiki and Sindhi's Devanagari orthography

Compound of ڳ[edit]

The velar nasal is a type of consonantal sound, used in Saraiki language and other some spoken languages.It is compound of 'ن' and 'ڳ'.[2] It is the sound of ng in English sing. The symbol in the International Phonetic Alphabet that represents this sound is ŋ, and the equivalent X-SAMPA symbol is N. The IPA symbol ŋ is similar to ɳ, the symbol for the retroflex nasal, which has a rightward-pointing hook extending from the bottom of the right stem, and to ɲ, the symbol for the palatal nasal, which has a leftward-pointing hook extending from the bottom of the left stem. Both the IPA symbol and the sound are commonly called 'eng' or 'engma'.
