Latin Epsilon

Latin epsilon or open e (majuscule, minuscule) is a letter of the extended Latin alphabet, based on the lowercase of the Greek letter epsilon (?). It occurs in the orthographies of many Niger-Congo languages, such as Ewe, Akan, and Lingala, and is included in the African reference alphabet.

In the Berber Latin alphabet currently used in Algerian Berber school books,[1] and before that proposed by the French institute INALCO, it represents a voiced pharyngeal fricative [?]. Some authors use ?ayin ⟨?⟩ instead; both letters are similar in shape with the Arabic ?ayn ⟨?⟩.

The International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) uses various forms of the Latin epsilon:
