Č in upper- and lowercase

The grapheme Čč (Latin C with háček) is used in various contexts, usually denoting the voiceless postalveolar affricate consonant [tʃ] not unlike English ch in the word chocolate. It is represented in Unicode as U+010C (uppercase Č) and U+010D (lowercase č). The symbol usually represents the voiceless postalveolar affricate consonant [tʃ].

Origin

The symbol originates with the 15th century Czech alphabet as introduced by the reforms of Jan Hus. From there, it was adopted into the Croatian alphabet by Ljudevit Gaj in 1830, and it also features in the Slovak, Slovenian, Bosnian, Latvian and Lithuanian.

Uses

In Czech, Slovak, Croatian, Slovenian, Bosnian, and Lakota alphabets, it is the fourth letter of the alphabet. In Northern Sámi alphabet and the Baltic languages Lithuanian and Latvian, the letter is in fifth place.

It is equivalent to Ч in the Cyrillic alphabet and can be used in Ukranian, Belarusian, Russian, and Bulgarian romanisations. It features more permanently in the Latinic forms of Montenegrin, Macedonian and Serbian.

/Č/ is also used in phonetic transcription.

Software

Representation in software follows the same rules as the háček.

Unicode

U+010C (uppercase Č - use Alt 268 for input) and U+010D (lowercase č - use Alt 269 for input) create this character. By using the combining character (U+030C) can be placed together with either c or C to generally achieve the same visual result.

TeX/LaTeX

In text the control sequence \v{c} will work. In math mode, $\check{c}$ also works.
