From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ç or ç (C-cedilla) is a Latin letter used in Albanian, Azerbaijani, Manx, Tatar, Turkish, Turkmen, Kurdish, Kazakh, Catalan, French, Portuguese, and Occitan, as a variant of the letter C with a cedilla. It is also sometimes used in Crimean Tatar and in Tajik (when written in the Latin script) to represent the /d͡ʒ/ sound. It is often kept in the spelling of words borrowed from other languages to any of these languages in English, Basque, Dutch, Spanish and other languages using the Latin alphabet.

In the International Phonetic Alphabet, /ç/ stands for the voiceless palatal fricative.
