The grapheme Ň (minuscule: ň) is a letter in the Czech, Slovak and Turkmen alphabets. It is formed from Latin N with the addition of a caron (háček in Czech and mäkčeň in Slovak) and follows plain N in the alphabet. Ň and ň are at Unicode codepoints U+0147 and U+0148, respectively.
In Czech and Slovak, ň represents /ɲ/, the palatal nasal. Thus, it has the same function as Serbo-Croatian nj, French gn, Hungarian ny, Polish ń, Portuguese nh and Spanish ñ.
In the 19th century, it was used in Croatian for the same sound.
In Turkmen and Southern Kurdish, ň represents the sound /ŋ/, the velar nasal, as in English thing.
