ASCII Character ĎLatin capital letter D with caron
The grapheme Ď (minuscule: ď) is a letter in the Czech and Slovak alphabets used to denote /ɟ/, the voiced palatal plosive (precisely alveolo-palatal), a sound similar to British English d in dew. It was also used in Polabian. The majuscule of the letter (Ď) is formed from Latin D with the addition of a háček; the minuscule of the letter (ď) has a háček modified to an apostrophe-like stroke instead of a wedge. When collating, Ď is placed right after regular D in the alphabet. Ď is also used to represent uppercase ð in the coat of arms of Shetland; however, the typical form is Ð.
