Letter[edit]

Ch ‎(mixed case, upper case CH, lower case ch)

  1. a letter used in older, pre-World-War-II Latvian spelling, but now replaced everywhere by H (lower case h).

Usage notes[edit]

This letter can still be found in older books, or in books written by the Latvian diaspora prior to the fall of the Soviet Union. It used to represent the sound of IPA symbol /x/, as distinct from /h/; but since these sounds have merged as /x/ in current Latvian pronunciation, <h> (= /x/) is now used in all cases.

Letter[edit]

Ch ‎(mixed case, upper case CH, lower case ch)

  1. che, the fourth letter of the Spanish alphabet, after C and before D

Usage notes[edit]

Since 1994, this letter has been treated as if it were C followed by h for collation purposes only. In 2010, this letter was officially removed by the RAE from the Spanish alphabet.
