Pronouncing e and ei

In Illunse, pronounce e as in met or pet. This is as the Latin e (unaccented e), and as (or similar to) the Old English e (short or unaccented e).

In Illunse, pronounce ei as a in way or plate, or as ey in hey. This is as ē (e macron) or ei in Reconstructed Ancient Latin Pronunciation, and as the Old English é (long or accented e).
