Letter

ie (upper case Ie)

  1. The thirteenth letter of the Maltese alphabet, written in the Latin script.

Usage notes

  • Ie was made a letter in its own right only in the 1990s. In older dictionaries, lists, etc., it is treated as i + e.
  • Ie is used in stressed syllables only. When unstressed, it is reduced to e or i. In closed syllables, the reduction is generally e; in open syllables it is predominantly i, but both may be possible.
  • Before the letters , ħ, h, q, the long vowel phonemes i and ie merge. The orthographic distinction is based on etymology and morphological analogy, which causes rather frequent spelling errors even in edited texts.
