How can I draw a dot under a symbol in math mode?

I'm looking for the equivalent of the \textvbaraccent command for the math mode.


With the same approach as in https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/38907/4427



One has to consult the tipa package font tables to find out the right code. A useful package is fonttable:


However, the file t3enc.def has the entry

  {\tipaupperaccent{156}{#1}}                    % Vertical Bar Accent

that tells the number to use.

In general, this approach is superior to the use of \text{\textvbaraccent{$x$}} that doesn't place the accent taking care correctly of the slant as can be seen in the following picture (left my definition, right the result of \text)
