Silent E

From:Colin Halverson <chalvrson@...>

Do any other languages (I am sure there are at least a few) have a silent
letter or especially a silent modifying letter (as in English "ate", the e is
 silent and makes the a long)???  Where does this come from??  Do any of ur
conlangs have this??

On a side note, is Welsh a Celtic language, a Germanic language or like
English?  or what?  Does Welsh or Celtic or Ire (or whatever you call that
Irish language) use the silent e?
