Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

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 postalveolar affricate, equivalent to English ch (IPA: ). It is occasionally used in Old English for the same reason, to distinguish it from c pronounced as /k/, which otherwise is spelled the same. Its voiced equivalent is Ġ.

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.
