Latin ligature DB.svg

The db ligature, ȸ, is a typographic ligature of Latin d and b (also interpretable as a ligature of c and b), and used in Africanist linguistics for the transcription of certain African languages to represent [], for example in the Zulu sequence [ɱb̪v].

In Berber, ȸ can be used for Cyrillic consonants in a high tone.
