ASCII Character ЧCyrillic capital letter Che
Che, Cha or Chu (Ч ч; italics: Ч ч) is a letter of the Cyrillic script. It commonly represents the voiceless postalveolar affricate /tʃ/, like ⟨tch⟩ in "switch" or ⟨ch⟩ in "choice". In English, it is romanized most often as ⟨ch⟩ but sometimes as ⟨tch⟩, like in French. In German, it can be transcribed as ⟨tsch⟩. In linguistics, it is transcribed as ⟨č⟩ so "Tchaikovsky" (Чайковский in Russian) may be transcribed as Chaykovskiy or Čajkovskij. The name of Che in the Early Cyrillic alphabet was чрьвь (črĭvĭ), meaning "worm". In the Cyrillic numeral system, Che had a value of 90.
