T-cedilla (majuscule: Ţ, minuscule: ţ) is a letter which is part of the Gagauz alphabet, used to represent the Gagauz language sound /t͡s/, the voiceless alveolar affricate (like ts in bolts, or like the letter C in Slavic languages). It is written as the letter T with a cedilla below and it has both the lower-case (U+0163) and the upper-case variants (U+0162). It is also used in the Manjak and Mankanya language for /ʈ/.
The lower case is used in Semitic transliteration.
- Gagauz alphabet: [t͡s]
This character was used in Kabyle (Berber) for the affricate /t͡s/ (now represented with a tt).
In early versions of Unicode, the Romanian letter Ț (T-comma) was considered a glyph variant of Ţ, and therefore was not present in the Unicode Standard. It is also not present in the Windows-1250 (Central Europe) code page. The letter was only added to the standard in Unicode 3.0 (1999), and some texts in Romanian still use Ţ instead.
