Voiced velar lateral tap

The voiced velar lateral tap is an allophone of the velar lateral approximant in some languages of New Guinea, such as Kanite and Melpa. The extremely short duration of the [?] in intervocalic position (20-30 ms) warrants calling it a tap, according to Ladfoged & Maddieson (1996).

There is no specific symbol for this sound. However, an IPA capital L with a breve for extra-short, [], would capture Ladefoged and Maddieson's description.
