IPA phonetic symbol 〚ɹ̩〛
The IPA phonetic symbol [ɹ̩] (lowercase upside-down "r" with a small vertical line below) represents syllabic /r/, a syllable with no vowel, as in "nurse" [nɹ̩s] or "letter" [ˈlɛtɹ̩]. In a broad notation [ɹ̩] is /ɜːr/ when stressed or /ər/ when unstressed. Most dictionaries prefer this notation: /nɜːrs, ˈletər/.
