onto an English phoneme set. It's the voiced velar fricative (/ɣ/ in IPA), which is, as far as I'm aware, completely unused in English.
What I'm wondering is, if this is the phoneme set I can work with, how do I best represent this sound from Arabic?
My best guess so far is to use x (/x/ in IPA), and just hope we'll catch the voicing. Any improvements on that?
Update: Best solution found, I think (use the voiced velar plosive from English; it's the least different from the voiced velar fricative). Thanks!
