What do e.g. and i.e. mean?
E.g. stands for exempli gratia, which is—you guessed it—an abbreviation of “for example.”
How to remember it: “E” is for “Example.”
I.e. stands for id est, which means “that is” or “namely.”
Memory trick: Another way to translate it is “in essence,” which it also stands for in English.
