What does EG stand for?

For example

EG is a quick way of saying “For example.” It’s a short form of the Latin phrase “Exempli gratia,” which directly translates to “free example.” We use it when we want to give examples to make our point clear.

For instance, if we’re talking about different kinds of fruits, we might say, “I love fruits, EG apples, oranges, and strawberries.” Here, the term EG is used to introduce the examples of fruits that we love.

So remember, next time you want to introduce an example in your conversation or writing, you can use EG as a shorthand. It’s simple, quick, and widely understood!

Example for using ‘EG’ in a conversation

Hey, do you want to grab lunch later? I know this amazing burger joint.

Sure, sounds good! I’m vegetarian though, so I hope they have options for me.

Don’t worry, they have veggie burgers, salads, and even wraps. EG, you can try their spicy black bean burger!

That sounds delicious! Thanks for the suggestion. Let’s meet there at 12:30?
