|Cyrillic letter Dje|
|The Cyrillic script|
Dje (? ?; italics: ? ?) is a letter of the Cyrillic script.
Dje corresponds to the Latin letter D with stroke (? ?) in Gaj's Latin alphabet of Serbo-Croatian and is so transliterated. When strokes are unavailable, it is transliterated as ⟨Dj dj⟩. Example of use of this sound would be J sound in the name Django.
Dje was constructed by request of Vuk Stefanovi? Karad?i?. There were several proposed shapes of the letter (one by Pavle Solari?, another by Gligorije Ger?i?). The variant now in use was designed by Lukijan Mu?icki; it was designed by modification of the letter ?, itself a revival of the old Cyrillic letter Djerv (?). The new letter was adopted in Karad?i?'s 1818 dictionary and thus entered widespread usage.
