I am not familiar with all but two of these characters, and therefore hesitate to write about the other characters. Furthermore I am not at all sure how to even start this article, so if anyone who does know would like to give it a go, please do. These are all the characters I know of which use a diacritic bar, it is possible I left out a few. — Jor 21:21, Jan 11, 2004 (UTC)

There are some barred characters i have seen that do not have unicode assignments, i believe. One is a barred letter "c" used to represent a voiceless alveolar affricate (this is interchangeable with <c> and <¢>) . Another is a barred small capital letter "i" used to represent a high central lax vowel. — ishwar  (SPEAK) 06:15, 2005 Jun 3 (UTC)

I think a bar does not equal to a stroke, partly because both name exist in Unicode, but also their shapes. A bar is horizontal, while a stroke is from top-right to bottom-left. Compare L bar (Ƚ, ƚ) and L stroke (Ł, ł), or O bar (Ɵ, ɵ) and O stroke (Ø, ø). - Hello World! 08:34, 23 November 2008 (UTC)
