    • n Es See ess.
    • n Es In music, E♭.
    • n Es A prefix of Latin origin, being a French or other Romance modification of Latin ex-. Examples are seen in escheat, eschaufe, ete. Words having in Middle English es- have reverted to the original Latin ex-. See exchange, exploit, etc.
    • n Es An apparent prefix, of Romance origin, being radical initial s before another consonant, preceded by a slight euphonic vowel, as in escalade, esquire, especial, estate, estray, of ultimate Latin origin, and escarp, eschew, etc., of Teutonic origin, some of which have also forms (original or aphetic) without the e-, as scutcheon, squire, special, state, stray, etc., while some with original (Old French or Middle English) es- have only s-in modern English, as scrivener, spiritual, strain, etc. This Old French es- in most cases became later e-, modern French é-: see equery, écu. In exchequer this original es- has become ex-, suggesting falsely a Latin origin.
    • n Es The early form of the possessive or genitive case singular, now regularly written 's, but still pronounced as -es (-ez) after a sibilant, namely, s, z, sh, ch (= tsh), j, written -dge, -ge (= dzh), x (= ks), as in lass's, pace's, horse's, rose's, bush's, church's, hedge's, fox's, etc. (formerly written lasses, paces, horses, roses, bushes, churches, hedges, foxes, etc.), words forced to conform in spelling to other words, like boy's, man's, etc. (formerly written boys, mans, etc.), where the e is actually suppressed in pronunciation; in Middle English and earlier the suffix was regularly -es, which still remains in possessives like horses (Anglo-Saxon and Middle English horses), guides (Middle English gides), now written with the apostrophe, like other words, horse's, guide's. See -s.
    • n Es The earlier form of the now more common plural suffix -s, retained after a sibilant (like the phonetically similar possessive suffix: see -es), as in lasses, paces, horses, roses, bushes, churches, hedges, foxes, etc. When the nominative singular ends in a final silent e, the plural suffix is regarded, orthographically, as simply -s, but it is historically -es (the nominative final e being dropped before inflectional suffixes, and the medial e (in -es) being suppressed by syncope after vowels and nonsibilant consonants), as in does, dues, ties, etc., companies, families, etc., plural of doe, due, tie, etc., company, family, and other words in -y, originally -ie.
    • n Es The earlier form of -s, the suffix of the third person singular of the present indicative of verbs, retained after a vowel, as in huzzaes, goes, does, etc. When the infinitive ends in silent e, the personal suffix is regarded, orthographically, as simply -s, but it is historically -es, the infinitive -e being dropped before inflectional suffixes, as in rues, endues, etc., defies, supplies, accompanies, etc., infinitive rue, endue, defy, accompany, etc., the termination -y being formerly -ie.
    • n Es The nominative singular termination of some Latin nouns and adjectives of the third declension. Examples of such nouns, used in New Latin or English, are tabes, pubes.
    • n Es The nominative plural termination of Latin masculine and feminine nouns and adjectives of the third declension. Examples of such nouns, used in New Latin or English, are Aves, Pisces, fasces.
    • Es An abbreviation of east-southeast.
