The use of n with accent in different languages
The Latin Ń, ń is a letter formed by putting an acute accent over the letter "N." The accented letter Ń is used in different languages, such as the Belarusian Łacinka alphabet, the Polish, Wymysorys, Kashubian, and the Sorbian languages. Besides, the n with an accent can be found in Khmer's romanization, where it represents /ɲ/. It is the same as Slovak and Czech "ň," Albanian and Serbo-Croatian "nj," Galician and Spanish "ñ," French and Italian "gn," Catalan and Hungarian "ny," and Portuguese "nh."
In the Yoruba language, the accented N letter is used to connect a pronoun to a verb. For instance, when using the pronoun "I" and the verb "to eat," then the letter n with an accent would be "mo ń jeun," where the letter "n" is pronounced with a distinct unsound.
Besides, in Lule Sami, the accented letter "n" represents /ŋ/. Here, the letter is used in the Yale romanization of Cantonese when the nasal syllable - /ŋ̩/ has a rising tone. Moreover, in the Kazakh language, the n with accent mark was proposed in 2018. According to that proposal, the Latin alphabet had to replace the "Cyrillic Ң" representing/ŋ/. The replacement suggestion of the letter has been later modified to Ŋ in the later of 2019.
In the Polish language, the "N" letter appears directly after "n" in the alphabet. Still, no Polish word starts with this letter cause the token may not appear before a vowel. Instead of that, it may appear only before r in the word-final or a consonant position. In the letter's former case, a digraph "ni" is commonly used to indicate a palatal or even rather alveolo-palatal "n."
