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

For the drug sometimes referred to E, see Ecstasy.

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, also known as the silent 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 types of EEdit

The types 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 different types are used in English, except occasionally É/é for some French words such fiancé, café, and crème brûlée.
