Ė ė is a letter of the Latin script.

Use[edit]

It is the 9th letter in the Lithuanian alphabet, and is also used in the Colognian language of Cologne, Germany, Potawatomi language[citation needed] and Cheyenne language[citation needed].

It was coined by Daniel Klein, the author of the first grammar of the Lithuanian language.[1]

Its pronunciation in Lithuanian is [], contrasting with ę, which is pronounced a lower [ɛː] (formerly nasalized [ɛ̃ː]) and e, pronounced [ɛ, ɛː].

This character is also used in Croatian to denote the old yat alongside the more usual ě.
