(minuscule: ) is a letter of the Latin alphabet, formed from D with the addition of a dot diacritic.

In the transcription of Afro-Asiatic languages such as Arabic, ḍ represents an "emphatic" consonant [], and is used for that purpose in the Berber Latin alphabet.

In the transcription of Indic and East Iranian languages, and in the orthography of the O'odham language, ḍ represents a retroflex [ɖ]. This was used in a former transcription of Javanese, but has been replaced by "dh."
