Certainly there's such a thing. As for how it'd be pronounced, it'd simply be /f/ or /v/ as a stop (or to put it another way, the labiodental stop is to /f/ as /k/ is to /x/). I wouldn't expect any languages use it (though I could be wrong) as there isn't any sign for it in the IPA chart, though I have seen it symbolized in a textbook with the Greek letter pi. *Muke! -- E jer savne zarjé mas ne Se imné koone'f metha Brissve mé kolé adâ.
