Le Littré (1880)

FILLEUL, EULE (s. m. et f.)[fi-lleul, lleu-l', ll mouillées, et non fi-yeul. Au XVIIe siècle, du moins Chifflet, Gramm. p. 209, l'assure, l'l finale ne se prononçait pas, quelle que fût la lettre qui suivît : mon filleu]

Celui, celle qui a été tenue sur les fonts du baptême, par rapport à son parrain et à sa marraine.

Cet enfant n'est nommé votre filleul qu'à cause qu'il devient votre fils spirituel en Jésus-Christ (FÉN. t. XVIII, p. 172)

REMARQUE

On a longtemps prononcé fillol. " Bien des gens disent, ne pensant point faire de faute : C'est mon fillol, c'est ma fillole. Il faut dire filleul, filleule ", MARG., BUFFET, Observ. p. 129 (en 1668). On trouve fillole dans Molière : Il n'a pas aperçu Jeannette ma fillole, Laquelle a tout ouï, parole pour parole, l'Ét. IV, 7. Vaugelas remarque qu'à la cour on dit filleul, et à la ville fillol, et qu'il faut suivre l'usage de la cour. Aujourd'hui filleul est seul usité.

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
