Ń (minuscule: ń) is a letter formed by putting an acute accent over the letter N. In the Belarusian Łacinka alphabet; the alphabets of Polish, Kashubian, Wymysorys and the Sorbian languages; and the romanization of Khmer, it represents /ɲ/, which is the same as Czech and Slovak ň, Serbo-Croatian and Albanian nj, Spanish and Galician ñ, Italian and French gn, Hungarian and Catalan ny, and Portuguese nh. In Yoruba, it is used to connect a pronoun to a verb. For example, when using the pronoun I and the verb to eat, it would be, mo ń jeun. It is pronounced with a distinct un sound.
In Polish, it appears directly after n in the alphabet, but no Polish word begins with this letter, because it may not appear before a vowel (the letter may appear only before a consonant or in the word-final position). In the former case, a digraph ni is used to indicate a palatal (or rather alveolo-palatal) n. If the vowel following is i, only one i appears.
