“E” Link

We use “e-link” to link a noun (or a noun phrase) to the following word(s).
The use of e-sound after a noun often signals to the listener that he/she is about to be given further information about the noun.
This information may indicate ownership, origin, description, name, and so on.

Note:
The use of e-link is usually very similar to “of” in English:
Bank of England → /bānk-e Englis/ بانکِ انگلیس
Colour of sky → /rang-e āsemān/ رنگِ آسمان

Note:
If the word immediately before the e-link is a vowel, we use -ye instead of e for ease of pronunciation.
