All good stuff to know. Ү it is, and I think Ғ makes more consistent use of my notional "little line" diacritic. As I think I noted, though, I have no voicing contrast in any other set of fricatives, and it's looking like the /G/ phoneme may be either eliminated or changed. It's that or bring in a full set of voiced fricatives (В, Ж, З, Ғ). The more I think about it, though, the more that actually fits in with some of the sound changes I've got in mind. Hmm.
