    Not really- you could possibly make a case for 'sblood, though that has an apostrophe at the start. My dictionary has sdeign and sgraffito, though I have never seen them in use.

    No, not in English. Also 'v'.
    These sounds are all possible in some languages (eg. Italian, where these sounds are binary pairs for st, sk, sp, sf respectively.)

    Sbarro

    There is an Italian restaurant chain in the US called "Sbarro." That's a proper name, of course and not a "dictionary word."

    Re: S with d,g,b

    However, all of these words start with the sound /z/, not with the sound /s/.

    Actually, I have never heard the word "sdeign". Maybe this one has /s/? I doubt it though.
