Etymology

Proposed in 1908 as part of the new Latvian spelling by the scientific commission headed by K. M?lenbahs, which was accepted and began to be taught in schools in 1909. Prior to that, Latvian had been written in German Fraktur, and sporadically in Cyrillic.

Pronunciation

Letter

E

e (lower case, upper case E)

  1. The seventh letter of the Latvian alphabet, called e and written in the Latin script.

Usage notes

The letter E/e (like its long counterpart ?/?) represent two sounds, [?] -- ?aurais e ("narrow e") -- and [æ] -- platais e ("broad e"). In principle, [?] is used when there is a palatal element (the vowels i, ?, e, ?, the diphthongs ie, ei, and the palatal consonants j, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, d?, and, in the old spelling, ?) either in the same or in the following syllable; otherwise, [æ] is used. Unfortunately, some historical changes have obscured this pattern by removing some previously existing palatal elements; as a result of that, for a number of words the actual pronunciation of the letter e -- [?] or [æ] -- must be memorized.

Particle

é

  1. Used to link a possessed noun to its possessor.

Usage notes

This particle accompanies several tonal changes, as well as a simplification or elision of the coda of the possessed noun in some cases. Many nouns can be linked directly in possessive constructions without using this particle, chiefly those that denotes humans or animals when used in the singular, although it is impossible to predict exactly which nouns will follow which pattern based on semantics, ancestral noun class, or morphology.
