~ L ~

L, a liquid consonant, which preserves always the same sound in English. In the Saxon it was aspirated a hlaf, loaf; hlœfdiʒ, lady.

At the end of a monosyllable it is always doubled; as, shall; still; full, except after a diphthong; as, fail; feel; veal; cool. In a word of more syllables it is written single; as, channel; canal; tendril. It is sometimes put before e, and sounded feebly after it; as bible; title.
