Ẽ, ẽ is a letter in which the tilde indicates a nasal vowel. It is the 5th letter in the Guaraní alphabet and widely used in other Amerindian languages in Brazil, such as Kaingang. It is also found in Umbundu and perhaps in related Bantu languages.
In Emilian-Romagnol, ẽ is used to represent [ẽː], e.g. galẽna [gaˈlẽːna] "hen".
