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". In Chuvashia, it looks identical to the Latin letter C with cedilla (Ç ç Ç ç). Occasionally it also has the hook diacritic curves rightward, as in the SVG image shown in the sidebar. In many fonts, the character hooks to the left.
