Please, help me identify the meaning/purpose/origins of this symbol/sign/character?

I suppose it might be used to describe emotions (like irritation or surprise?) or for onomatopoeia. However, I have no idea where to find any info on what it really means.

I could not find anything in Traditional Chinese vocabs and some Japanese sources. I found similar-looking letter for Hindi - does not help though :(

Any help from people who know what is going on or can advise where to look would be much appreciated.

It is the symbol "ㄛ" in Zhuyin, which may represent the word "哦" or "喔".
