TranslingualEdit

LetterEdit

è (upper case È)

  1. The letter e with a grave accent.

Usage notesEdit

  • In French, Italian, Occitan and Catalan the è is pronounced /ɛ/ as opposed to é which is pronounced /e/.
  • In Italian it is used to indicate a stressed e, /ɛ/, at the end of a word.
  • In older writings on Old Icelandic or Old (West) Norse (e.g. A grammar of the Icelandic or Old Norse tongue) è is used instead of the modern é to denote that the phoneme is different in character (a rising diphthong) compared to á, í, ó, ú and ý (falling diphthongs or monophthongs).
