About including usage[edit]

I wonder if I should include a section about usage of Finnish ei (and other forms) as has been done to the corresponding Estonian word. Could that be too encyclopaedic? (Feel free to move this discussion somewhere else, I'm still a newbie...) Hyark 20:30, 17 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Yes please do put in a usage field. I don't consider that encyclopedic. It's very useful for language learners. — Hippietrail 02:59, 18 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Rfv-sense: The name of the Latin script letter A/a. I'm pretty sure this is always called "a". --Yair rand (talk) 09:45, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

423 Google Book hits for "letter ei", of the first hundred, zero valid, the first 30 or so refer to "letter ei" in mathematical notation. Also, my tendency is to pronounce /aɪ/ as in kite when I see this. I think ay might be attestable with the sense (ay bee cee, etc.) Mglovesfun (talk) 21:24, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

RFV failed, English section removed. I did find two citations, both by the same author; I've put them at Citations:ei. —RuakhTALK 01:24, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

bucks?[edit]

Can Eier also mean "cash", "bucks"? If yes, please add. CMEHalverson 22:46, 19 May 2011 (UTC)

Eier is slang for Euros, Swiss Franks, Deutsche Marks, etc. —Stephen (Talk) 22:56, 20 May 2011 (UTC)
