ÉTYMOLOGIE

Bourguign. fringai ; Berry, fringuer, s'agiter, courir. On trouve aussi le fréquentatif fringoter, au sens de fredonner. En conséquence Diez y voit le radical fring du latin fring-utire, gazouiller, fring-illa, pinson ; d'où le sens de fredonner, de danser, de s'agiter. Mais il est plus direct de le tirer du latin frigere ( le i et le 2nd e prennet un accent bref), sauter, bondir, avec l'interposition de la nasale n.

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 !
