I.e. Versus E.g.

Leave a Comment
I.e. and e.g. are both abbreviations for Latin terms. I.e. stands for “id est” and means “that is.” or “in the other words” E.g. stands for “exempli gratia”, which means “for example.”
I.e.
Use it to introduce a further clarification.
Example:
“I like to play cards, i.e., bridge and crazy eights.”
You know that these are the only card games that I enjoy.
