-Er & -Et endings

When an e is added to er ending masculine adjectives, a grave accent is placed over the e of er. Often the addition of this e causes the pronunciation of the adjective to change but not always.

cher chère dear, expensive

entier entière entire
étranger étrangère foriegn
fier fière proud,hauty

premier première first

The same goes for many adjectives ending in -et.
