Here’s a challenge for you: try writing an entire blog post without using the letter “E.” Theoretically, it shouldn’t be that difficult, because E is only found in 11% of all English words. The people who figured that out looked at the Oxford English Dictionary to get that.
Of course, how many words in the OED do you use on a given basis? My guess is not a large percentage, and I’ll bet that most of those words contain an E. Here’s an easier challenge: write a sentence only with words that don’t contain an E.
Winston Churchill once said “Short words are better than long words, and short words that are old words are the best of all.” Limiting yourself only to words that don’t contain an E gives you the opportunity to explore some old, short words that you might have forgotten. Give it a try!
