For the drug sometimes referred to E, see Ecstasy.

E is the fifth (number 5) letter in the English alphabet.

In English it has two main sounds when it is spoken. Usually it is a short E (ĕ), but sometimes it is a long E (ē).

One more thing in English is the so-called magic E. That is when a silent e at the end of a word makes the previous e long. Example: morpheme, which is pronounced as morphēm.

Typographic variants of E

The variants of E include (but may not be limited to) capital E lower-case e é È è Ê ê Ë É ë Ě ě Ē ē Ĕ ĕ Ė ė Ę ę

None of these variants is used in English, except occasionally É/é for some French words.
