I've added it to the encoding table, but I don't know anything of how it's used. -- (talk) 02:03, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

Turkish use of Ğ/ğ isn't entirely true. It is said in the article that ğ is between 2 vowels which is incorrect (i.e. "dağlar" meaning "mountains"). And also it isn't silent. The letter changes the tone. Alone it has remotely similar sound as french "r", but not as sharp. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:16, 3 August 2011 (UTC)

Unicode ü̆ vs. ǚ[edit]

"the breve cannot be used as a substitute [for the pinyin caron] in computer environments because Unicode does not provide an equivalent of ǚ with a breve"

That is false. Unicode does not include a ü-breve as a precomposed character, but it allows us to compose it: ü̆ Ü̆. (Not that I see why one should want to use the breve as a substitute for the caron.)

If there's no objection, I'd remove that whole sentence; I don't think it contributes anything. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:59, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

Latin script?[edit]

Ӂ (the equivalent of G before E or I in the Latin script)

I think this is rather unclear. Isn't this supposed to mean "G before E or I in English"? After all, how is a letter pronounced in a script?

When Moldovan is written in Latin letters, G has a soft form as in Italian. —Tamfang (talk) 06:32, 11 April 2016 (UTC)


The traditional Cyrillic breve differs in shape and is thicker on the edges of the curve and thinner in the middle, compared to the Latin one. In Latin types, the shape looks like ears.

In Cyrillic it looks to me like Mickey Mouse ears; perhaps to you the Latin breve looks like some other kind of ear(s)? —Tamfang (talk) 06:34, 11 April 2016 (UTC)
