What does E.G. mean?

I need to know what E.G. means.


Answer by  John (9008)

E. G. (usually written e. g. ) is an abbreviation for the latin term exempla gratia, which means "for example. " This is commonly used to preface a list of examples to illustrate a point. It implies that the list is not exhaustive--in other words, that these are just some of several items in a category.

E. G. is an abbreviation for the Latin phrase "exempli gratia", which pretty much translates to "for example", so people use it before giving examples.
