Usage notesEdit

  • Mostly used for words of either Ancient Greek or Latin origin, though also used when referencing Old English texts or using recently derived Old English loanwords.
  • Uncommon in modern times except in linguistic use.
  • Often absent in American English (reduced to e) whenever it has the sound /ɛ/ (SAMPA /E/) or /iː/ (SAMPA /i:/), but sometimes retained (in this form, or as ae) when it has a different sound, as in formulæ/formulae.
