Extended Perso-Arabic script
B̤ē (Sindhi: ٻ) is an additional letter of the Arabic script, derived from bāʼ (Arabic: ب) with an additional dot. It is not used in the Arabic alphabet itself, but is used to represent the sound [ɓ] when writing Hausa, Saraiki, and Sindhi in the Arabic script. The same sound may also be written simply as bāʾ in Hausa, undifferentiated from [b].
|Position in word:||Isolated||Final||Medial||Initial|
Both Hausa and Sindhi are also written in scripts besides Arabic. The sound represented by b̤ē is written Ɓ ɓ in Hausa's Latin orthography, and written ॿ in Saraiki and Sindhi's Devanagari orthography.
