문서들을 읽다보면, i.e. 또는 e.g. 같은 약어들이 사용되고 있는것들을 볼 수 있습니다.
저도 그냥 대충 어떤거겠거니 하고 넘어가는 경우가 많았는데, 좀 헷갈리는 경우가 있어서 다시보게 되었죠.

"i.e." 와 "e.g."는 라틴어의 축양형. 이라고 하는군요.


 i.e. 와 e.g



i.e. - that is 

i.e.는 간단하게 말하면 that is 같은 녀석입니다. 라틴어로는 id est 라고 하는군요. 
뭔가 좀 더 설명해 주거나 명확하게 하려고 할때 덧붙여서 말해주면 되는 그런 놈이군요.

"I.e." stands simply for "that is," which written out fully in Latin is 'id est'. "I.e." is used in place of "in other words," or "it/that is." It specifies or makes more clear.



e.g. - for example

e.g.는 for example 같은 녀석입니다. 라틴어로는 exempli gratia 라고 표현한다고 하네요.

"E.g." means "for example" and comes from the Latin expression exempli gratia, "for the sake of an example," with the noun exemplum in the genitive (possessive case) to go with gratia in the ablative (prepositional case). "E.g." is used in expressions similar to "including," when you are not intending to list everything that is being 






아래는 i.e.와 e.g. 의 장소에 관련되거나 여성을 중심으로한 예입니다. 한번 읽어보세요^^;

 Examples of i.e. and e.g

1. Places to Concentrate:

I.E. (Id Est)

I'm going to the place where I work best, i.e., the coffee shop.
[There is only one place that I am claiming is best for my work. By using "i.e.", I am telling you I am about to specify it.]

E.G. (Exempli Gratia)

At the places where I work well, e.g., Starbucks, I have none of the distractions I have at home.
[There are lots of coffee shops I like, but Starbucks is the only international one, so it's the only "example" that would work.]


2. Helen and Her Siblings:

I.E. (Id Est)

The most beautiful human in Greek mythology, i.e., Leda's daughter Helen, may have had a unibrow, according to a 2009 book on Helen I'm reading.
[Helen, whose beauty launched the Trojan War, is considered the most beautiful woman from Greek mythology. There is no contender.]

E.G. (Exempli Gratia)

The children of Leda, e.g., Castor and Pollux, were born in pairs.
[The pair of boys, who are named Castor and Pollux, might be called twins, but it's not so clear about another set of Leda's offspring. Helen was said to have been hatched from an egg; Clytemnestra, born. Despite this distinction in manner of birth, Leda gestated/brooded multiple "pairs" of children, so Castor and Pollux are an example.]




Italics
 

I.e. and e.g. are such common Latin abbreviations that they do not require italicization.



Capitalization
 
If the form "I.e." looks odd, it's because both "i.e." and "e.g" are usually mid-sentence, surrounded by commas, so they are unlikely to be seen with sentence initial capitals.

Someone quoted this article to insist that i.e. should not be capitalized. The writer began his sentence with "i.e." Evidently I wasn't clear enough that rules about sentence capitalization (or other things) may take precedence over the fact that i.e. isn't generally capitalized. I was only trying to explain why "I.e" might look funny to readers.

      저도 헷갈려서 찾아볼수밖에 없었어요. ㅎ
      개략적으로는 이해가 가긴 하는데,
      한글로 풀어낼 자신이 없어서
      예는 원문 그대로 가져다 써놓는게 낫겠더라구요 ㅋ ^^;;;;
