Kazakh Short U (Ұ ұ; italics: Ұ ұ) is a letter of the Cyrillic script.[1] In Unicode, this letter is called "Straight U with stroke".[1] Its form is the Cyrillic letter Ue (Ү ү Ү ү) with a horizontal line through it. It is similar to the symbol for the Japanese yen or the Chinese yuan (¥), and the Latin letter Y with stroke (Ɏ ɏ).

Kazakh Short U is used in the alphabet of the Kazakh language,[1] where it represents the close back rounded vowel /u/, like the pronunciation of ⟨oo⟩ in "boot", or the near-close near-back rounded vowel /ʊ/, like the pronunciation of ⟨oo⟩ in "hook". It is romanized as ⟨u⟩.

Polish[edit]

In Polish, uppercase Latin Ұ (not in Unicode) is just another way to write "Y".
