Ze with descender or Dhe (Ҙ ҙ; italics: Ҙ ҙ), is a letter of the Cyrillic script. It is used in both the Bashkir[1] and Wakhi languages, where it represents the voiced dental fricative /ð/ (like the th in this) and the voiced alveolar sibilant affricate /d͡z/ (like the ds in lads) respectively. Its form is derived from the Cyrillic letter Ze (З з З з). It is romanized as Z with acute ⟨ź⟩ for Bashkir, and corresponds with Ezh ⟨ʒ⟩ in the Latin script of the Wakhi language.
