Che or Cha (Ч ч; italics: Ч ч) is a letter of the Cyrillic script.

It commonly represents the voiceless postalveolar affricate /tʃ/, like the pronunciation of ch in "change".

In English, Che is usually romanized as ch, or sometimes as tch, as in French. In linguistics it is transcribed as č. Thus Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's surname (Чайковский in Russian) may be transcribed as Chaikovsky or Čaykovskiy.

History

The name of Che in the Early Cyrillic alphabet was чрьвь (črvĭ), meaning "worm".

In the Cyrillic numeral system, Che had a value of 90.

Usage

Slavic languages

In all Slavic languages which use Cyrillic, except Russian, Che represents the voiceless postalveolar affricate /tʃ/.

Russian

In Russian, Che usually represents the voiceless alveolo-palatal affricate /t͡ɕ/. There is a small number of words where it represents /ʂ/ (similar to English to sh /ʃ/ in "shape"); e.g. что, чтобы, нарочно.

Zhuang

Che was used in the Latin Zhuang alphabet from 1957 to 1986 to represent the fourth (falling) tone, because of its similarity to the numeral 4. In 1986, it was replaced by the Latin letter X.
