Category:English words following the I before E except after C rule

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to navigation Jump to search

In English, the letter sequences "ie" and "ei" are used in several words in a manner as exemplified by the "I before E except after C" rule, in which when choosing between the two sequences, "i" precedes the "e" if not preceded by "c", and otherwise forms into "cei" when preceded by "c".

A vast majority of "cei" words can be traced back to Latin capio, namely the "-ceive" words and relatives.
