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.
