I don't even think there's an IPA for said character. Only @. On the comments about 'fellow', I think: /f&l8u/ is an adjective or posh and spelt 'fellow'. /f&l@/ is a noun and spelt 'fella'. 'Blackfella' (Indigenous Australian) and 'whitefella' (white Australian) are the most common nominal uses of 'fella'. They always get a linking R if the next word begins with a vowel, hence the requirement for the spelling. (Other times you might pronounce -ow as /@/ (like /j@/, you) the schwa gets pronounced as (short) /u/.) Hiatus is horrible. Tristan.
