D is the fourth letter of the latin alphabet. In unicode, it is encoded as Latin Capital Letter D, U+0044 (D) and Latin Small Letter D, U+0064 (d).

Appearance Edit

The capital letter D is identical to Cherokee Letter A, U+13A0 (Ꭰ).

Usage Edit

D is used in the vast majority of languages that use the latin alphabet. In some languages like Finnish, however, there are no voiced plosives, and therefore they only use it in loan words.

In the International Phonetic Alphabet, it represents a voiced alveolar plosive.
