Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
The random article for Monday, 10 June 2019 is E (Cyrillic).
E (Э э; italics: Э э; also known as backwards e, from Russian э оборо́тное, e oborótnoye, [ˈɛ ɐbɐˈrotnəjə]) is a letter found in two Slavic languages: Russian and Belarusian. It represents the [e] and [ɛ], as e in word "editor". In other Slavic languages that use the Cyrillic script, the sounds are represented by Ye (Е е), which represents in Russian and Belarusian [je] in initial and postvocalic position or [e] and palatalizes the preceding consonant.
In Cyrillic Moldovan, which was used in the Moldovan SSR during the Soviet Union and is still used in Transnistria, the letter corresponds to ă in the Latin Romanian alphabet. It is also used in the Cyrillic alphabets used by Mongolian and many Uralic, Caucasian languages and Turkic languages of the former Soviet Union.
This recording reflects the Wikipedia text as of 01:03 UTC on Monday, 10 June 2019.
For the full current version of the article, see E (Cyrillic) on Wikipedia.
