According to the wikipedia article of letter e

The plural of the name of the letter e is ees (the plural of the letter itself is rendered E's, Es, e's, es).

Therefore, is ees then a regular plural formed from -es?

  • Dictionary.com licenses the plurals e's and es. The plural ees is more felicitous to the pronunciation. 'Regular plural' is merely a term invented to describe the common way plurals are formed, by adding an s, or es on occasion. But words ending in a, e, i, u don't 'regularly' take -es to pluralise.

  • @ should ees then be categorized an irregular plural (as is geese)?
