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 Divine Vision still was seen,
Still was the human form divine
Weeping in weak & mortal clay;
O Jesus, still the form was thine!”
—William Blake (17571827)
“To the United States the Third World often takes the form of a black woman who has been made pregnant in a moment of passion and who shows up one day in the reception room on the forty-ninth floor threatening to make a scene. The lawyers pay the woman off; sometimes uniformed guards accompany her to the elevators.”
—Lewis H. Lapham (b. 1935)
“After all, what is reading but a vice, like drink or venery or any other form of excessive self-indulgence? One reads to tickle and amuse ones mind; one reads, above all, to prevent oneself thinking.”
—Aldous Huxley (18941963)
