    Phonemic symbol ɜʊ

    Have you ever come across this phonemic symbol?
    [ɜʊ]
    I was taught at university (long ago) that it's the same as [əʊ] (for example in note), used when writing by hand. But I am beginning to doubt. Can you clear it up for me a bit?

    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    Re: Phonemic symbol ɜʊ

    The upside-down omega [ʊ] is the vowel in "foot" and I believe the [3] is a hard g.
