Danny, the symbol you describe was withdrawn from the IPA much earlier than
1994. In fact, it was withdrawn way back in 1976. It represented a 'syllabic
nasal' (POA not specified). I guess it was used to represent the syllabic /N/

I think you answered your own question: [nl]. But if by lateral release
you mean SAMPA [d_l], then the nasal analogy would be [n_l]. That is,
a <n> with a superscript <l>. If you want to be really detailed, I suppose
you'd have to use a tilde over the superscript <l>, e.g., [n_l~].
