ei AND ie

ei AND ie :

The familiar rule is that English words are spelled with the “I” before the “E” unless they follow a “C,” as in “receive.”

But it is important to add that words in which the vowel sound is an “A” like “neighbor” and “weigh” are also spelled with the “E” first.

And there are a few exceptions like “counterfeit,” “seize,” and “weird.”
