Romanian writing and pronunciation - letter "e":
The vowel "e", in initial position, may have two values. In a small number of words, directly from Latin, initial "e" is pronounced different:

eu - ieu; ei - iei; ele - iele; ea - ia; e┼čti - ie┼čti

The initial "e" from more or else recently borrowed words is pronounced such as :

elev(pupil), echilibru(equilibrium)

Romanian writing and pronunciation - the short final "i":
In initial or medial position, the vowel "i" is pronounced normally.
When "i" is preceded by a consonant in a final unstressed syllable, "i" is pronounced very short:

the word "inimi" (hearts), contains three of "i", where the final "i" is very short.

Short final "i" is use in :

* mark the distinction between singular and plural

* we obtained the definite article by simple adding "i" to the end of the word

* mark the difference between the first and second person singular, respectively, in the present tense of the indicative mood of the verbs:

eu întreb/tu întrebi = I'm asking for/you are asking for

There are two specific situations in which "i" is no short:

- at the end of infinitive, when is stressed (a privi/to look)

- when is preceded by consonants "r" or "l" (codri/forest; simpli/simple)
