    In other words, it's the old name for an apostrophe. We were taught that the dot (yes, dot) of the i was to ensure it did not get mistaken for an 'ell' and that j only retained its dot to show it was a variant of i.. have never ever heard of tittle, thus proving there is always something to learn!!! :-) YAM xx

    1. In Italy I always had to say 'long i' for a j, since they hardly ever used the j in their language, only for foreign words.

  3. Well, it was not the first explanation I thought of in any case. Oh no, that is tiddle. Something completely different. Sorry...

  11. TeeHeeHee..it is just such a giggle-y sounding word...I like Gail's "tittle-tattle" also...and may have to start using it(while trying not to giggle).

  12. Interesting....we thought you (or your autocorrect) had misspelt title. LOL! We'd only heard it, like the rest, as tittle-tattle.

  13. Awwww, those furry smiles. So so sweet.

    And tittle is new to me. I've heard of tilde (or tidle)...the ~ above the N in Spanish

  15. I love the English language, and its etymology. I got interested in the why's and wherefores of English back in the 70's.
