Words with Silent Letter E! The letter “e” is the most common letter in the English language, but did you know that it’s also often silent? That’s right, there are lots of words where the letter “e” doesn’t make a sound. For example, the word “silent” has a silent “e” at the end. Can you think of any other words with a silent “e”? Here are some more: time, bite, give, have, write, and cave. In each of these words, the letter “e” changes the sound of the vowel that comes before it. But when the “e” is at the end of a word, like in “time,” it doesn’t change the sound of the word at all. Try saying these words out loud and see if you can hear the difference!
