Merge with Ng (letter)[edit]

I created the Ng (letter) to follow the nomenclature of other articles: Nj (letter), Esh (letter), but wasn't aware of this one. Now there's more articles using (letter) than (digraph). Which way should the merge go? ---moyogo 10:13, 16 May 2006 (UTC)

I'd prefer (digraph). Many languages use it, but not all of them recognize it as a letter... The term "digraph" can be based on its origin as a combination of n + g, without referring to its status in any particular language.
(Nj (letter) should probably be moved to Nj (digraph), too, although esh (letter) can stay where it is since it's a single glyph.) --Ptcamn 10:33, 16 May 2006 (UTC)
Ok, I guess digraph is better, as long as its meaning is inclusive of letter. ---moyogo 10:56, 16 May 2006 (UTC)

Ng in Swedish[edit]

It's to my understanding that ng is a distinct phoneme in Swedish as well (representing the /ŋ/ sound), but I'm not exactly sure. Maybe a native Swede or someone else who has great experience with the language can clarify? --Wikiwow 20:56, 25 September 2006 (UTC)
