|Cyrillic letter Djerv|
|The Cyrillic script|
Djerv (Majuscule, Minuscule ) is one of the Cyrillic alphabet letters that was used in Old Cyrillic. It was used in many early Serbo-Croatian monuments to represent the sounds /d?/ and /t?/ (modern ?/? and ?/?). It exists in the Cyrillic Extended-B table as U+A648 and U+A649. It is the basis of the modern letters ? and ?; the former was in fact a direct revival of djerv and was considered the same letter.
Djerv was also commonly used in Bosnian Cyrillic, where it was an officially used letter. When it was combined with the letters ? and ? it was represented for the sounds /?/ and /?/.
The letter ? was formed in 1818 by Vuk Stefanovi? Karad?i? after several proposals of reforming Djerv by Lukijan Mu?icki and Gligorije Ger?i?. However the letter ? (also based on djerv) was first used by Dositej Obradovi? in a direct reform of djerv.
