Its equivalent in the Belarusian Latin alphabet is Ŭ ŭ . Phonetically, it indicates a consonant u - comparable to the Polish ł or the w in English . Etymologically, it is in positions where there is v or l in other Slavic languages .
In the Uzbek language this sign was used until the introduction of the Latin alphabet in the 1990s as well, where there is the unrounded half-closed back vowel / ɤ / represented. In Latin script , the ў was replaced by oʻ (example: Ўзбекистон → Oʻzbekiston). Also in use was ў in karakalpakischen language , where the labialized voiced velar approximant / w / represented and in the Latin script by w is replaced.
