ASCII Character ĊLatin capital letter C with dot above
Ċ (minuscule: ċ) is a letter of the Latin alphabet, formed from C with the addition of a dot. It is used in Maltese to represent a voiceless palato-alveolar affricate, equivalent to English ch ([t͡ʃ]), corresponding to Č in languages such as Czech, Slovak and Serbo-Croatian. Ċ was formerly used in Irish to represent the lenited form of C. The digraph ch, which is older than ċ in this function in Irish, is now used. Ċ is also present in the Latin alphabet of the Chechen language, created in the 1990s. The Cyrillic equivalent is ЦӀ, which represents the sound [tsʼ].
