Hi Adolfo,

The Ⱥ ⱥ Ɇ ɇ are already present.

I found "Proposal to encode two Latin characters for Mazahua"
also "Future Additions to ISO/IEC 10646 (Jan. 2016)"
and sure enough, in the deltas for version 11,
your stroked U appears.

This wouldn't be hard to do.  We're kind of in a freeze right now though, and this is bleeding edge standard.  It's not wish list, it should be there once the standard is released.  On the other hand, as you say, the combining slash works for now.

I'm postponing it for now.  But it should go into the next release of the project.

Thanks for pointing these out

Hi, I’m here pestering again with another wishlist item.

It would be cool to have the barred letters ⟨Ⱥ ⱥ Ɇ ɇ Ꞹ ꞹ⟩ (code points 023A, 2C65, 0246, 0247, A7B8, A7B9, respectively). These letters, together with ⟨Ø ø⟩ (of Danish, Faroese and Norwegian fame), form a set of four “vocales heridas” (meaning “glottal vowels”, literally “wounded vowels”) used in the Mazahua language of Mexico.

The last two characters are new in Unicode 11.0. Speakers have been resorting to using a combining solidus to represent this sound: i.e., ⟨U̷ u̷⟩.

Thanks in advance!
