M is the thirteenth letter (and the tenth consonant) of the English alphabet, placed after L and before N, and of other west European alphabets derived from the Latin. Pronounced [ˈem], it also was the thirteenth letter of the ancient North Semitic and Etruscan alphabets, but the twelfth of the Greek and Latin alphabets.

M is also the Roman numeral representing the number value of 1000.
