En-ghe (? ?; italics: ? ?) is a letter of the Cyrillic script used only in non-Slavic languages. The shape of the letter originated as a ligature of the Cyrillic letters en (? ?) and ghe (? ?), but en-ghe is used as a separate letter in alphabets.

It represents the velar nasal /?/, like the pronunciation of ⟨ng⟩ in "sing".

? is romanized using ?, Ng, or even ?.

En-ghe is used in the alphabets of the Aleut, Altai, Meadow Mari, and Yakut languages.

In certain Old Slavonic manuscripts, a character of the same shape could be used to represent palatalized /n?/, a role similar to modern Serbian/Macedonian letter nje (? ?). These manuscripts also may contain similarly built characters for palatalized ?, ?, ? and ?.
