Translingual[edit]

ct ligature in the word aucto

Etymology[edit]

The digraph of Latin consonants c and t were often ligated in many writings due to how common they were.

Letter[edit]

ct lower case

  1. (Should we delete(+) this sense?) Ligature of the lower‐case letters c and t. A round, leftward line from the up‐most tip of t is drawn onto the upper end of c, joining the letters.

Usage notes[edit]

  • Unicode has never officially encoded this ligature[1], since it is merely non‐structural, but some custom fonts support it on the code point EEC5, because of a recommendation[2] by the Medieval Unicode Font Initiative.
