“E” for Exquisite

“E” for Exquisite ~ Ink Drawing – © 2012 Dora Ficher

 

I have been learning many new things about “Letters” as I do my alphabet letters.

This is what I learned about the letter “E“:

The letter “E” is one of the most versatile letters in the English alphabet!  (See – we’ve already used it!)  It is the most commonly used letter in no less than eleven languages. “E” is derived from the Greek letter Epsilon, which was used for many of the same purposes as the letter that we use today. Due to the Great Vowel Shift—a mysterious change in pronunciation in the English language—the letter is pronounced in two varieties: long (such as in the word bee) and short (like in the word bell). Every educated English student must examine for etymology (that is, history) and exercise (that is, use)!

The word I chose for “E” is “Exquisite” meaning “Of extreme beauty” “Delicately beautiful” “Lavishly elegant and refined”

Would love to see what words you choose. Leve them down in the “Reply / Comments” area.

Happy Friday my friends! Great weekend to all!
