e (lower case, upper case E)

  1. The seventh letter of the Latvian alphabet, called e and written in the Latin script.

The letter E/e (like its long counterpart Ē/ē) represent two sounds, [ɛ]šaurais e (narrow e) — and [æ]platais e (broad e). In principle, [ɛ] is used when there is a palatal element (the vowels i, ī, e, ē, the diphthongs ie, ei, and the palatal consonants j, ķ, ģ, ļ, ņ, š, ž, č, , and, in the old spelling, ŗ) either in the same or in the following syllable; otherwise, [æ] is used. Unfortunately, some historical changes have obscured this pattern by removing some previously existing palatal elements; as a result of that, for a number of words the actual pronunciation of the letter e[ɛ] or [æ] — must be memorized.
