Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ŝ or ŝ (S circumflex) is a consonant in Esperanto orthography, representing a voiceless postalveolar fricative (either palato-alveolar or retroflex); that is, either IPA: [ʃ] or [ʂ].

Esperanto orthography uses a diacritic for all four of its postalveolar consonants, as do most Latin-based Slavic alphabets (polish is the most notable exception). Letters and digraphs that are similar to ŝ and represent the same sound include Czech, Slovak, Slovene, Serbian Latin, and Croatian š and English sh.

It is used in ISO 9:1995 (standard of transliteration into Latin characters of Cyrillic characters) for letter Щ.
