It is bothering me a while, so here is my question. How do you pronounce/say these shortcuts when you are speaking or reading these for somebody else?
"/aɪ/ /iː/ " :)?
"/iː/ /dʒiː/" :)?
Thanks in advance.
Personally I have always pronounced them like this:
e.g. -> example given
i.e. -> that is
However, I was waiting for a native speaker answer to confirm it.
Does any native speaker read them differently?
PS Not a native speaker
I read the letters. No need to use the Latin.
e.g: for example
i.e: that is, as well as "IE" (like pronouncing both letters)
If I was reading aloud a document with these written in it, I would spell out the letters.
If I was merely speaking, it would be rare for me to say 'that is' in spontaneous speech, but I would say 'that is', not 'i e'. I would say 'for example' in spontaneous speech too.
