The Letter E (The English Alphabet)

The letter E is the fifth Letter in The English Alphabet.  It is also the second Vowel in The English Alphabet.

As with every Letter in The English Alphabet, The Letter E has two versions in the written form.  These two versions are called:  The Upper-Case and The Lower-Case.

As you learn The Common Tongue of The English language, you will see that The letter E can be pronounced many different ways.

The two primary ways to pronounce The Letter E are called, the “Short” Pronunciation and the “Long” Pronunciation.
