(Redirected to P with stroke article)

(minuscule: ) or "p with stroke" is a letter of the Latin alphabet, formed from P with the addition of a stroke, usually through the bowl but sometimes through the descender. It is used in some phonetic transcription systems, such as the Americanist phonetic notation, to represent a voiceless bilabial fricative (IPA: ɸ).

In 1987 ᵽ was adopted for writing the Tanimuca-Retuarã language, where it represents either a fricative or a stop depending on the dialect.


The minuscule form, U+1D7D LATIN SMALL LETTER P WITH STROKE was added to Unicode 4.1 in 2005, while the majuscule U+2C63 LATIN CAPITAL LETTER P WITH STROKE was added to version 5.0 in 2006.

Character encoding Case Decimal Hexadecimal
Unicode Capital 11363 2C63
Small 7549 1D7D

As of 2006, few fonts support either character. Charis SIL and Doulos SIL display only the minuscule.
