It has been suggested that this article be merged with Double monocular O, Monocular O and Multiocular O. (Discuss) Proposed since March 2023.
Binocular O (majuscule: Ꙫ, minuscule: ꙫ) is one of the exotic glyph variants of Cyrillic letter O. This glyph variant can be found in certain manuscripts in the plural or dual forms of the root word eye, like Ꙫчи.
A similar jocular glyph (called "double-dot wide O") has been suggested as a phonetic symbol for the "nasal-ingressive velar trill", a paralinguistic impression of a snort, due to the graphic resemblance to a pig snout.
