quickinfo

The suffix -e is an allomorph of -s. It may be attached to a few (short) nouns denoting a time period, and only in a construction with a preceding definite article or demonstrative. Examples are de moarneon that morning, dy jûneon that evening, de seldichste fredethat same friday. It is not known exactly where this variant can be found dialectically, but presumably mostly in the south and the east.
