Dje (? ?; italics: ? ?) is a letter of the Cyrillic script.

Dje is the sixth letter of the Serbian Cyrillic alphabet, used in Serbo-Croatian to represent the voiced alveolo-palatal affricate /d?/.

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?.[1] 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;[2][3][1] it was designed by modification of the letter ?, itself a revival of the old Cyrillic letter Djerv (?).[1] The new letter was adopted in Karad?i?'s 1818 dictionary and thus entered widespread usage.[1]
