In English, the letter è is sometimes used in the past tense forms of verbs in poetic texts to indicate that the final syllable should be pronounced separately. For example, blessèd would indicate the pronunciation /ˈblɛsɪd/BLESS-id rather than /blɛst/BLEST. It also occurs in loanwords such as Italian caffè.
In Emilian, è is used to represent [ɛː], e.g. lèt [lɛːt] "bed". In Romagnol, it represents [ɛ], e.g. vècc' [vɛtʃː] "old men".
In French, it always represents a [ɛ] sound of letter e when this is at the end of a syllable.
È means "is" in modern Italian[ɛ], e.g. il cane è piccolo meaning "the dog is small". It is derived from Latin ĕst and is accented to distinguish it from the conjunction e meaning "and". È is also used to mark a stressed [ɛ] at the end of a word only, as in caffè.
È in Norwegian (both Bokmål and Nynorsk) is used some words to denote a shorter vowel such as in karrière (career).
