The fourteenth letter of the Hebrew alphabet is nun The letter is pronounced like the English letter n (IPA: /n/, "n" as in "name"). It also has the numeric value of 50.

The nun take two print forms. One at the beginning or middle of a word, and a special look (longer and below the baseline) when it is the final letter in a word. They look like נ ן.

When at the end of a word, it changes form. This final form is known as Nun Sofit - ן ("Sofit" is Hebrew for "final"). A few letters in the Hebrew have this property, and Nun is one of them.


It is also one of the letters on a dreidel.
