ō
o

r ō t

Key to Vowel Sounds: John Paul Jones

     67. O-Hook Modified.  To avoid an unnecessary angle, the slant of the o-hook is modified slightly before n, m, r, and l, thus:

on, om, or, ol

     When a downstroke comes before the o-hook, this rule does not apply, since the o-hook joins to downstrokes without an angle, as in:

pour, shown, bone, pole
