    Usage notes

    The spelling haĉek employs a circumflex, rather than a háček. Use of the letter Ĉ is almost wholly restricted to Esperanto (where it denotes the same sound, , that Č does in háček); where haĉek occurs, it may be a conscious Esperantism. This spelling is very rare and, where it occurs, may be regarded as featuring an erroneous inversion of the háček diacritic: ˇ → ˆ.
