Epiglottal flap.svg

An epiglottal flap is not known to exist as a phoneme in any language. However, it exists as a voiced allophone of the voiceless epiglottal plosive ʡ, found between vowels in Dahalo and perhaps other languages.

There is no dedicated symbol for this sound in the IPA, but it can be transcribed by adding a "short" diacritic to the symbol for the plosive, ʡ̯. (The diacritic is here placed under rather than above the letter to avoid the ascender.)
