Tzadi is in words like:

tzevah- colour

etz- tree

etzbah- finger

betzah- egg

tzahov- yellow

 

There is also a Tzadi sofit. We print it differently when it is at the end of a word. It looks like a backwards y.

***Please note that there is a mistake in the print out. The word etzbah (finger) begins with an aleph, not an ayin.
