Common writing errors: Difference Between “i.e.” and “e.g.”
What’s the difference between i.e. and e.g.?
Unless you have studied Latin or studied the English language in depth, it might be a surprise for you to learn that the abbreviations i.e. and e.g. actually mean different things.
- e.g. means “for example” and is derived from the Latin “exempli gratia”
- i.e. means “that is” and is derived from the Latin “id est”
