The C with bar (majuscule: Ꞓ, minuscule: ꞓ), also known as barred C, is a modified letter of the Latin alphabet, formed from C with the addition of a bar. It was used in the orthography of Kildin Sami in the 1930s. It is also used in the orthography of Nanai. Its Unicode codepoints are U+A792 Ꞓ LATIN CAPITAL LETTER C WITH BAR and U+A793 ꞓ LATIN SMALL LETTER C WITH BAR.
The United States Federal Geographic Data Committee uses the capital barred C to represent the Cambrian Period in geologic history. In phonetic transcription, the lowercase barred C may denote a voiceless palatal fricative (IPA: [ç]), and in 1963 it was proposed as a symbol for a voiceless flat postalveolar fricative [ɻ̊˔] by William A. Smalley. In 19th-century American English dictionaries such as those by Noah Webster and William Holmes McGuffey, the letter was used to denote ⟨c⟩ pronounced as /k/.
