E \E\ ([=e]).
1. The fifth letter of the English alphabet.

Note: It derives its form, name, and value from the Latin,
the form and value being further derived from the
Greek, into which it came from the Ph[oe]nician, and
ultimately, probably, from the Egyptian. Its
etymological relations are closest with the vowels i,
a, and o, as illustrated by to fall, to fell; man, pl.
men; drink, drank, drench; dint, dent; doom, deem;
goose, pl. geese; beef, OF. boef, L. bos; and E. cheer,
OF. chiere, LL. cara.
[1913 Webster]

Note: The letter e has in English several vowel sounds, the
two principal being its long or name sound, as in eve,
me, and the short, as in end, best. Usually at the end
of words it is silent, but serves to indicate that the
preceding vowel has its long sound, where otherwise it
would be short, as in m[=a]ne, c[=a]ne, m[=e]te, which
without the final e would be pronounced m[a^]n, c[a^]n,
m[e^]t. After c and g, the final e indicates that these
letters are to be pronounced as s and j; respectively,
as in lace, rage. See Guide to Pronunciation,
[sect][sect] 74-97.
[1913 Webster]
