ɴ

  1. (IPA) uvular nasal
    (superscript ⟨ᶰ⟩) [ɴ]-prenasalization, [ɴ]-release or post-nasalization, [ɴ]-coloring or a weak, fleeting or epenthetic [ɴ].
    (superscript, on a click consonant) A nasal uvular click; specifically:
    velar dental click ⟨ᶰǀ⟩ (old-style ⟨ᶰʇ⟩),
    velar alveolar click ⟨ᶰǃ⟩ (old-style ⟨ᶰʗ⟩),
    velar palatal click ⟨ᶰǂ⟩ (old-style ⟨ᶰ𝼋⟩),
    velar lateral click ⟨ᶰǁ⟩ (old-style ⟨ᶰʖ⟩),
    velar bilabial click ⟨ᶰʘ⟩,
    velar retroflex click ⟨ᶰ𝼊⟩ or ad hoc ⟨ᶰ‼⟩ (old-style ⟨ᶰψ⟩).
    Placement after the click letter – e.g. ⟨ǂᶰ⟩ – may imply an audible uvular release.
    See also ⟨ᵑ⟩, ⟨𐞒⟩, ⟨𐞥⟩.
  2. (UPA) devoiced alveolar nasal (IPA: [n̥])
  3. (obsolete, pre-1900 IPA) Used to represent either a palatal nasal [ɲ] or a velar nasal [ŋ].
