# N

N is the fourteenth letter of the modern Latin alphabet.

Semitic Nûn was probably the picture of a snake; the sound value of the letter was /n/ - as in Greek, Etruscan, Latin and all modern languages. Greek name: Nυ, Ny.

November represents the letter N in the NATO phonetic alphabet.

## Usage

N serves as a alveolar nasal in virtually all languages that use the Latin alphabet. A common digraph with N is NG, which produces a velar nasal in a variety of languages, usually final in English. Aspirated forms NH and NGH are sometimes seen in other languages.
