About the word FE

Fe is the symbol used in chemistry on the periodic table to represent the element iron, where iron is a heavy ductile metal. An example sentence using the word Fe could include: “Today we will be learning about the element iron, or “FE” for short, in science class.” The word is a noun that’s pronounced: “f-ee.”

In Scrabble, Fe is an effortless way of playing an “F” if you’re stuck finding a longer word for this letter tile. This is because it only uses two letters, with “E” also being the most common in the alphabet and Scrabble tile distribution. Other easy “F” words include “EF” (the reversal of “FE”), “FA”, “OF”, and “IF”.

There are many ways you can extend the word Fe, some of which include “Fez”, “Few”, and “Fey” to make longer higher scoring words.
