Kje (or Tje) (Ќ ќ; italics: Ќ ќ) is a letter of the Cyrillic script, used only in the Macedonian alphabet, where it represents the voiceless palatal plosive /c/, or the voiceless alveolo-palatal affricate /tɕ/. Kje is the 24th letter in this alphabet. It is romanized as ⟨ḱ⟩ or sometimes ⟨kj⟩.

Words with this sound are most often cognates to those in Serbo-Croatian with ⟨ћ⟩/⟨ć⟩ and in Bulgarian with ⟨щ⟩, ⟨т⟩ or ⟨к⟩. For example, Macedonian ноќ (noḱ, night) corresponds to Serbo-Croatian ноћ/noć, and Bulgarian нощ (nosht). The common surname ending -ić is spelled -иќ in Macedonian.
