The semisoft sign (Ҍ ҍ; italics: Ҍ ҍ) is a letter of the Cyrillic script.[1]

The semisoft sign is used in the alphabet of the Kildin Sami language, where it indicates palatalization (sometimes also called "half-palatalization") of the preceding stop, /nʲ/, /tʲ/, or /dʲ/.

It has a similar shape to the yat (ѣ) but the taller horizontal stroke is shorter.
