(minuscule: ⱬ, Unicode codepoints U+2C6B and U+2C6C, respectively) is a Latin letter Z with a descender.

It is used in pre-1983 romanization of the Uyghur language, transliterating ژ [ʒ], a pre-consonantal allophone of ج /dʒ/ (see Ⱪona Yeziⱪ), but occurring independently in a few words of Russian, Persian or Western origin (such as ⱬurnal from journal). Developers of the new ULY standard were divided between j and zh.
