Letter "Ǧ"

Ǧ/ǧ (G with caron, Unicode code points U+01E6 and U+01E7) is a letter used in several Latin orthographies.

In the Romany and Skolt Sami languages, it represents the palatalized g [ɟ͡ʝ].

It has also been used in Czech (and Slovak) orthographies until the middle of the 19th century to represent the consonant /ɡ/, whereas "g" stood for /j/.

In a romanization of Pashto, ǧ is used to represent [ɣ] (equivalent to غ).

In the Berber Latin alphabet, ǧ is pronounced [d͡ʒ] as an English J, like in Jimmy.

In Lakota, ǧ represents voiced uvular fricative /ʁ/.

In DIN 31635 Arabic transliteration it represents the letter (ǧīm).
