Z with descender
It is used in pre-1983 romanization of the Uyghur language, transliterating ژ [ʒ], a pre-consonantal allophone of ج /dʒ/ (see Qona Yëziq), but occurring independently in a few words of Russian, Persian or Western origin (such as ⱬurnal from journal). It corresponds to the digraph zh in the current ULY standard.
