Variants of uppercase Ɲ and lowercase ɲ

Ɲ is a letter indicating a palatal nasal. The lowercase form ɲ is used as an IPA symbol. The upper and lower case are used in the orthographies of some African languages (e.g. Bambara and Fula in Mali).

Its Unicode code points are U+019D and U+0272, respectively.

Usage[edit]

The lowercase form  ɲ is used as an IPA symbol for the palatal nasal.[1]

The symbol ɲ is used to represent an alveolo-palatal nasal in some languages, since there is no IPA symbol with the latter meaning, and no language distinguishes the two.
