    Cardinal: ⁧نُه(noh)
    Ordinal: ⁧نهم(nohom)
  • (Classical Persian) IPA(key): /nuh/
    • Most likely pronounced as [no̞h] (with a majhūl pēš /o/ as opposed to ma'rūf pēš /u/) based on descendant pronunciations. However, it is unclear because majhūl and ma'rūf short vowels are not clearly distinguished before a word final ⁧ه().
