Hello friends,

What is the exact pronunciation of e and the end of the words.

Ey (A) sound or E sound (as in French)

    I meant in general words ending with E ( what is the sounding at the end )

    Danke = [ D'a'n'k' ] or [ D'a'n'kay ]
    I have heard the first one

    Is it same in all case?

    We usually use a schwa at the end of those words. Sometimes, however, words like "danke" are pronounced fast and sound like "dunk". If you say "dunk-uh", you'll be understood. This is the closest description I can think off right now, so please wait for other replies.
