Usage notes edit
- 《汉语拼音方案》 (Scheme for the Chinese Phonetic Alphabet) defines a standard pronunciation for each letter in Hanyu Pinyin with Zhuyin. ㄝ (/ɛ/) typically only occurs in syllables with an initial glide (e.g. ㄧㄝ (-ie /i̯ɛ/)), where it is romanized as e. When it occurs in syllables without an initial glide, however, it is romanized as ê in order to distinguish it from ㄜ (-e /ɤ/). Such instances are rare, and are only found in interjections or neologisms.
ề (upper case Ề)
