Alternative formsEdit

  • Ч (Metelko alphabet, Danjko alphabet)
  • ZH, Zh (Bohorič alphabet)

EtymologyEdit

From Gaj's Latin alphabet Č, from Czech alphabet Č, from latin C, from Etruscan 𐌂 (c), from Ancient Greek Γ (G, Gamma), from Phoenician 𐤂(g, gimel). Pronunciation as IPA(key): /t͡ʃə/ is initial Slovene (phoneme plus a fill vowel) and the second pronunciation is probably by analogy of German C from German.
