User:Mongol says that this character can also be pronounced as "ē." Is this correct? 126.96.36.199 04:45, 28 October 2006 (UTC)
- ē is a valid Mandarin reading for this character. However, the words that use this reading tend to be a little more obscure than words with the ā reading.

There's a type of mule hide glue called "ejiao," and I think a city called "Dong-e" that both use the character. Can we, thus, add e1 as an alternate pronunciation? 188.8.131.52 23:49, 29 October 2006 (UTC)
Can this character be used in Chinese writing to approximate the English "ah," as in "Ah, I see!"? 184.108.40.206 05:38, 19 January 2007 (UTC)
