The db ligature, ȸ, is a typographic ligature of Latin d and b, and used in Africanist linguistics for the transcription of certain African languages, to represent []. ȸ was added to Unicode 4.1 in 2005, as U+0238 LATIN SMALL LETTER DB DIGRAPH. As of 2006, only a handful of fonts can display the character. These include Charis SIL, Code2000, Doulos SIL, Squarish Sans CT, and DejaVu fonts.
