is it spelled lil' or li'l?
duh. Who spells it li'l?
can you say 'little'?
Artists spell it Lil'.
But The famous comic strip by Al Capp was Li'l Abner.
Never heard the li'l way, thats wierd. I usually say lil, when i wanna get my thought out faster. But normally, Little works for me just fine.
If it were li'l, it should really be li'le or li'l', but they look even more stupid.
...and as stupid goes, only making a thread about it, and wanting to reply to a thread about it would be more stupid.
yes I know
So would that be a case of Kettle calling the pot black?
Oh I find my self sooooo funny!
Your li'l joke was good, Raid. I'm glad I raid it.
If I'm trying to write the word I'll, can I write it as Il'l??
PS: English is stoopid.
It's a nonstandard contraction anyway, so fussing over its details is moot.
However, for the sake of wasting time . . .
Li'l would be most logical since apostrophes usually represent omitted letters and since two apostrophes in one word is, to the best of my short-term recollection, never right (thus counting out li'l').
However, correct usage follows actual usage (despite what a lot of stuff-shirt language purists would have you believe), so if DQ (and I don't mean Dairy Queen) is correct, Lil' is proper even if it's illogical. English, after all, has never been governed by logic.
