Insular g

Insular G (Ᵹ ᵹ; image: Carolingian g from the Continent, thus used two forms of g as separate letters.


The lowercase insular g () was used in Irish linguistics as a phonetic character for ], and on this basis is encoded in the Phonetic Extensions block of Unicode 4.1 (March 2005) as U+1D79. Its capital () was introduced in Unicode 5.1 (April 2008) at U+A77D. The insular g is one of several insular letters encoded into Unicode but few fonts will display all of these symbols although some will display the lowercase insular g (ᵹ) and the tironian et (). One font that supports the other characters is Junicode.

The insular form of g is still used in traditional Gaelic script.
