The (Ҫ ҫ; italics: Ҫ ҫ) is a letter of the Cyrillic script. The name "The" is pronounced [θɛ], like the pronunciation of the in "theft". In Unicode, this letter is called "Es with descender".[1] Correctly rendered, it differs from the Latin letter C with cedilla (Ç ç Ç ç) in that the hook diacritic curves rightward (as in the SVG image shown in the sidebar). In many fonts, the character hooks to the left.[1]

The is used in the alphabets of the Bashkir and Chuvash languages.[1]
