    followed by .* any character repeated zero or more times.
    followed by any char at least once.
    There is a slight error with that, as it will block words starting with a or e, not just ae, so Encyclopaedia & anaesthesia are also blocked from the /etc/share/dict/words file.

    I found the following seems to do the job (at least it does for me):

    grep -E '^[^(ae)]?^[^ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ].*ae.+'
