at last! Now I know what the “Epiglottal plosive” ( ʡ ) sounds like!

Next time I want to include a voiced uvular fricative ( ʁ ) in my blog I can use this page as a reference.
Interesting: “Some useful precomposed characters that do not fit into the official IPA.”
What is ʚ I wonder?

Great IPA site with sound samples. No voiced glottal plosives though, which is what I was looking for!
An interesting reference under the description for the “labiodental nasal” ( ɱ ):
There does exist an oral counterpart to this sound, but it is very rare and the IPA does not even include it in its tables. (And we won’t include it either.)
I wonder what that would be!

I recently used Omniglot to identify a script I saw on a gravestone in Colma (it was Burmese).
Highlights include Sutton Sign Writing (a written form of signed languages) and the other Alternative writing systems, including a lot of science fiction scripts- Atlantean from the Disney movie, Hylian from the Legend of Zelda, and of course the Tolkien languages!
