LetterEdit

ie (upper case Ie)

  1. The thirteenth letter of the Maltese alphabet, written in the Latin script.

Usage notesEdit

  • Ie was made a letter in its own right only in the 1990s. In older dictionaries, lists, etc., it is treated as i + e.
  • Ie is used in stressed syllables only. When unstressed, it is reduced to i or e. The correct reduction is not always predictable, though both are sometimes possible.
  • Before the letters , ħ, h, q, the long vowel phonemes i and ie merge. The orthographic distinction is based on etymology and morphological analogy, which causes rather frequent spelling errors even in edited texts.
