Ň

The grapheme Ň (minuscule: ň) is a letter in the Czech, Slovak and Turkmen alphabets. It is formed from Latin N with the addition of a caron (háček in Czech and mäkčeň in Slovak) and follows plain N in the alphabet. Ň and ň are at Unicode codepoints U+0147 and U+0148, respectively.[1][2]

/ɲ/

In Czech and Slovak, ň represents /ɲ/, the palatal nasal. Thus, it has the same function as Serbo-Croatian nj, French gn, Hungarian ny, Polish ń, Portuguese nh and Spanish ñ.

In the 19th century, it was used in Croatian for the same sound.

/ŋ/

In Turkmen and Southern Kurdish, ň represents the sound /ŋ/, the velar nasal, as in English thing.
