Be (‹Б, б›) is the second letter in the Cyrillic alphabet. It represents /b/, a voiced bilabial plosive similar to the English pronunciation of ‹b›. In Russian and Bulgarian, ‹б› may also represent a voiceless [p] word-finally or before a voiceless consonant, and /bʲ/ before a palatalizing vowel.

In Russian, Bulgarian, and Ukrainian, ‹б› is romanized as the Latin letter ‹B›.

The old name for ‹б› was Buky. It had no numerical value. ‹В› inherited Beta's numeric value in the old system of Cyrillic numerals, so ‹б› had none.

Form

Capital Be along with both standard and Serbian/Macedonian variants of lowercase Be.
Be in cursive.

Though its physical appearance is approximately similar to a figure 6, it should not be confused with the Cyrillic letter в (called ve), which is shaped like Latin capital letter B and indicates /v/, the voiced labiodental fricative. Both letters are derived from Greek beta. When hand-written, the lower-cased б may look like the lower-cased delta, δ.

Be (Б, б) is the second letter in the Cyrillic alphabet.

It came from the Greek beta, along with the Cyrillic ve. Its old name was buky. It stands for the Roman B.

The uppercase Б looks like a B with the top curve missing and the lowercase one looks like the number 6.

People say it as [b].
