Nje (Њ њ; italics: Њ њ) is a letter of the Cyrillic script.

It is a ligature of the Cyrillic letters En н and Soft Sign ь.[1] It was invented by Vuk Stefanović Karadžić for use in his 1818 dictionary, replacing the earlier digraph нь.[1] It corresponds to the digraph nj in Gaj's Latin alphabet for Serbo-Croatian.[1]

It is today used in Macedonian, variants of Serbo-Croatian when written in Cyrillic (Bosnian, Montenegrin, and Serbian), and Itelmen, where it represents a palatal nasal /ɲ/, similar to the ny in "canyon" (cf. Polish ń, Czech and Slovak ň).
