The strident diacritic is U+1DFD COMBINING ALMOST EQUAL TO BELOW.
COMBINING ALMOST EQUAL TO BELOW could possibly be considered COMBINING
TILDE BELOW + COMBINING TILDE BELOW. However, COMBINING ALMOST EQUAL
TO BELOW is one character representing strident vowels. It does not
represent creaky voiced which is what tilde below represents in the
IPA. COMBINING ALMOST EQUAL TO ABOVE exists in Unicode and we believe
the COMBINING ALMOST EQUAL TO BELOW should be added for linguistic
usage as well.
