Jery, or bI, is [1] or even [M], a high central (or back) unrounded vowel. Similar to Turkish dotless I, Romanian A-circumflex, Welsh long Y and U (in Northern Wales), and Scots Gaelic AO (I think). And don't forget Japanese U, at least in Tokyo. I love that vowel, by the way.

They stuck around in Sanskrit a while, I think...
