Huy Quoc Staff asked 3 years ago

i.e. stands for id est (Latin), which means “that is“. You use it to link in a deeper explanation about something. Pronounce it “eye – ee”.

e.g. stands for exempli gratia (also Latin), which means “for example“. You use it to link in an example of a more generic term. Pronounce it “ee – jee”
