I looked it up on Google. ie stands for the Latin id est and actually means 'that is'. eg or exempli gratia means 'for example'. So, when you want to say, that is, you use 'ie' and when you want to say, for example, you use 'eg'. I love Google

Googled it, found this:http://ancienthistory.about.com/od/abbreviations/f/ievseg.htm

Question: When do you use i.e., and when do you use e.g., and what do they mean?
Answer: The Latin abbreviations "i.e." and "e.g." come up very frequently in writing and would probably come up more often if people were more sure of when it is right to use "i.e." and when "e.g." is required. To me, the only way to figure it out is to know what they stand for. i.e.

"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.

"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 discussed.
Examples of i.e. and e.g.:

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 best, 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.]

Hope that helps!

Nice work, Asacardimus... beat me by 5 minutes... Multi-tasking too hard here today, I guess.... I love Google, as well!
