The result of the move request was: not moved. -- Tavix(talk) 16:23, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
Silent e → magic e – Better title. The "e" in words like "hope", "came", "lime" etc. is not really silent. It modifies the sound of the previous vowel. Fish567 (talk) 03:14, 21 July 2016 (UTC)
Is there any evidence thst this is better known as magic e?--188.8.131.52 (talk) 05:14, 21 July 2016 (UTC)
I would be opposed to the change, unless good evidence can be provided. Doing superficial searches of Google Books/Scholar, I find "silent e" to be a much more common term for the phenomenon. (It's not really magic either, so the argument given by the proposer doesn't hold much water.) W. P. Uzer (talk) 06:50, 21 July 2016 (UTC)
Oppose - "silent x" is more commonly known than "magic x". –Davey2010Talk 14:10, 22 July 2016 (UTC)
Strong oppose. There is no reason to move this article when the E itself isn't pronounced anyway. The term "magic e" is not used in teaching the English language, except to young children, whereas "silent e" is. ONR (talk) 00:07, 27 July 2016 (UTC)
