Letter edit

(upper case )

  1. The letter s with a ponc séimhithe (dot above), used primarily in Gaelic type; equivalent to the digraph sh in roman type.

Usage notes edit

Unlike Fraktur or Antiqua/roman type 16th- and 17th-century usage, Gaelic type does not contrast long s (ſ) and round s (s). Whether the lower-case s looks more like ſ or s depends on the specific typeface, not on the position in the word.
