Ǝ ǝ
Ǝ ǝ

Ǝ ǝ or Turned E is an additional letter of the Latin alphabet used in African languages using the Pan-Nigerian alphabet or the African reference alphabet. The minuscule is based on a rotated e and the capital form majuscule Ǝ, based on a horizontally flipped majuscule E.

It is not to be confused with U+2203 THERE EXISTS, the existential quantifier used in logic, or with U+0259 ə LATIN SMALL LETTER SCHWA, a phonetic symbol.
