En (Cyrillic) - Form


The capital Cyrillic letter En looks very similar to the capital Latin letter H but, as with most Cyrillic letters, the lowercase form is simply a smaller version of the uppercase.

By exception, the Romanian Cyrillic alphabet used N and ɴ, instead of Н and н.

Coincidentally, the Cyrillic letter I ⟨И⟩, which looks like a reversed Latin ⟨N⟩, was derived from the Greek letter Eta ⟨Η⟩ while the Cyrillic letter En ⟨Н⟩ was derived from the Greek letter Nu ⟨Ν⟩ which looks like a reversed Cyrillic ⟨И⟩.

Famous quotes containing the word form:

    The sense of an entailed disadvantage—the deformed foot doubtfully hidden by the shoe, makes a restlessly active spiritual yeast, and easily turns a self-centred, unloving nature into an Ishmaelite. But in the rarer sort, who presently see their own frustrated claim as one among a myriad, the inexorable sorrow takes the form of fellowship and makes the imagination tender.
    George Eliot [Mary Ann (or Marian)

    It is a besetting vice of democracies to substitute public opinion for law. This is the usual form in which masses of men exhibit their tyranny.
    James Fenimore Cooper (1789–1851)

    The planter, the farmer, the mechanic, and the laborer ... form the great body of the people of the United States, they are the bone and sinew of the country—men who love liberty and desire nothing but equal rights and equal laws.
    Andrew Jackson (1767–1845)
