From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) [web1913]:
   N \N\ ([ecr]n),
      the fourteenth letter of English alphabet, is a vocal
      consonent, and, in allusion to its mode of formation, is
      called the dentinasal or linguanasal consonent. Its commoner
      sound is that heard in ran, done; but when immediately
      followed in the same word by the sound of g hard or k (as in
      single, sink, conquer), it usually represents the same sound
      as the digraph ng in sing, bring, etc. This is a simple but
      related sound, and is called the gutturo-nasal consonent. See
      {Guide to Pronunciation}, [sect][sect] 243-246.
  
      Note: The letter N came into English through the Latin and
               Greek from the Ph[d2]nician, which probably derived it
               from the Egyptian as the ultimate origin. It is
               etymologically most closely related to M. See {M}.

      -- {Uxo*o"ri*ous*ly}, adv. -- {Ux*o"ri*ous*ness}, {n}.

From Jargon File (4.2.0, 31 JAN 2000) [jargon]:
   N /N/ quant.   1. A large and indeterminate number of objects:
   "There were N bugs in that crock!"   Also used in its original sense
   of a variable name: "This crock has N bugs, as N goes to infinity."
   (The true number of bugs is always at least N + 1; see {Lubarsky's
   Law of Cybernetic Entomology}.)   2. A variable whose value is
   inherited from the current context.   For example, when a meal is
   being ordered at a restaurant, N may be understood to mean however
   many people there are at the table.   From the remark "We'd like to
   order N wonton soups and a family dinner for N - 1" you      can
   deduce that one person at the table wants to eat only soup, even
   though you don't know how many people there are (see {great-wall}).
   3. `Nth': adj. The ordinal counterpart of N, senses 1 and 2.   "Now
   for the Nth and last time..." In the specific context "Nth-year grad
      student", N is generally assumed to be at least 4, and is usually
   5 or more (see {tenured graduate student}).   See also {{random
   numbers}}, {two-to-the-N}.
