What is the name of the pronunciation symbol /o/ with a dot over it? We know it is pronounced /aw/ but need to know what the name of the symbol is.

  • We may need more information. IPA doesn't appear to use dots as diacritics to produce something like ȯ. There is a letter ö but that's not really pronounced /ɔ/. And there is /ʘ/ but that's a bilabial click.

  • Please understand that whatever your ȯ is intended to mean, it is not a standard phonetic symbol the way ɔ is.

If it says aw as in aww, then it is an open o, written as /ɔ/.
