The grapheme Ď (minuscule: ď) is a letter in the Czech and Slovak alphabets. It is formed from Latin D with the addition of háček and is placed right after regular D in the alphabet. It is used to denote /ɟ/, the voiced palatal plosive. It was also used in Polabian.

Ď is also used to represent uppercase ð (as opposed to the usual form, Ð), in the Coat of Arms of Shetland, however this use is unconventional.

Encoding[edit]

In Unicode, the letters are encoded at U+010E Ď latin capital letter d with caron (HTML Ď)[1] and U+010F ď latin small letter d with caron (HTML ď).[2]
