Abkhazian Dze (Ӡ ӡ; italics: Ӡ ӡ) is a letter of the Cyrillic script. It is used in the Abkhazian language where it represents the voiced alveolar affricate /dz/, pronounced like ⟨ds⟩ in "pods".
This letter is used in Abkhazian language and in the Uilta language. It was also used in one 1937 proposal (not adopted) for the Karelian language.
The letter looks very similar in shape to Latin Ezh (Ʒ, ʒ), as well as to numeral 3, but in some fonts the uppercase form of the Abkhazian Dze has no descender or has a shortened tail.
This letter is similar to the Cyrillic letter Dze, representing the same sound.
