Ņ
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Ņ is the fifteenth letter of the Spanish alphabet. Its name is eņe. Although an N with a tilde, it is a separate letter in Spanish, alphabetized between N and O.

It represents a voiced, nasal, palatal sound.

It is used in a number of English words of Spanish origin, such as jalapeņo, piņa colada, and piņata, though these are often spelled in English with an n instead, due to the absence of the ņ from the English alphabet. Some people from Spanish-speaking countries who have emigrated to the United States, such as Carlos Castaneda, have also anglicized their names by changing ņ into n.
