    Cool for example

    I want to know, which is the correct way to express that i want to give an example, because sometimes I find in brackets i.e or e.g or v.g., and i really donīt know what is the meaning of i.e. or the others spellings.

    Re: for example

    i.e. = Id Est (Latin: That Is)

    e.g. = Exempli Gratia (Latin: For Example)

    You should only use e.g. when giving an example.

    Re: for example

    v.g.: (?) vgl. = Vergleiche(n)! (German: Compare!)
