n    : ['ɛn]
N \N\ ([e^]n),
the fourteenth letter of English alphabet, is a vocal
consonent, and, in allusion to its mode of formation, is
called the dentinasal or linguanasal consonent. Its commoner
sound is that heard in ran, done; but when immediately
followed in the same word by the sound of g hard or k (as in
single, sink, conquer), it usually represents the same sound
as the digraph ng in sing, bring, etc. This is a simple but
related sound, and is called the gutturo-nasal consonent. See
{Guide to Pronunciation}, [sect][sect] 243-246.
[1913 Webster]

Note: The letter N came into English through the Latin and
Greek from the Phoenician, which probably derived it
