What is Kazakh Short U?

Kazakh Short U (Ұ ұ; italics: Ұ ұ) is a letter of the Cyrillic script. In Unicode, this letter is called "Straight U with stroke". Its form is the Cyrillic letter Ue (Ү ү Ү ү) with a horizontal line through it. It is similar to the symbol for the Japanese yen or the Chinese yuan (¥), and the Latin letter Y with stroke (Ɏ ɏ). Kazakh Short U is used in the alphabet of the Kazakh language, where it represents the close back rounded vowel /u/, or the near-close near-back rounded vowel /ʊ/. In other circumstances, it is used as a replacement for the former letter to represent close front rounded vowel /y/ in situations where it would be easilly confused with Cyrillic letter У у. It is romanized as ⟨u⟩ in Kazakh.
