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. 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 EEdit

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
