ڭ (Ng or Naf) is an additional letter of the Arabic script, derived from kāf (ك) with the addition of three dots above the letter. It is not used in the Arabic language itself, but is used to represent a velar /ŋ/ when writing Turkic languages.
In Ottoman Turkish, it represented the velar /ŋ/. An example is the word بوڭار (būŋār, “fountain, spring; wellhead”), compare pınar in modern Turkish, and bunar in Bosnian, Croatian, Montenegrin, and Serbian.
