Definition of cedilla in English:
1A mark ( ¸ ) written under the letter c, especially in French, to show that it is pronounced like an s rather than a k (e.g., façade).
- Elsewhere, especially in some loans, c is soft before ae, oe in Latin caesura and Greek coelacanth, soft in French façade (often written without the cedilla, as facade), and generally hard in Celt/Celtic.
- His publicity pictures show a perky looking man - puckish perhaps - with a cheery grin of white teeth and lightly raised eyebrows like cedillas.
- We apologise to our more pedantic readers for the absence of a cedilla on the word ‘soupcon’. But do you really think I've got time to write this drivel and go the Windows Character Map to look for French accents?
