  1. ß

    In the German alphabet, the letter ß, called "Eszett" or "scharfes S", in English "sharp S", is a consonant that evolved as a ligature of "long s and z" and "long s over round s". When speaking it is pronounced. Since the German orthography reform of 1996, it is used only after long vowels and diphthongs while ss is written after short vowels. The name eszett comes from the two letters S and Z as they are pronounced in German. In German, it is also called scharfes S
