Li’l Problem…

…unless they’re abbreviating “Lilliputian Angelz” or something.

(Thanks to David, who points out, “at least the misspelling’s on purpose!”)

it should, but it isn’t (the unofficial slogan of english).

Is it really true that there is an “accepted” abbreviated form for this? Surely strictly speaking – i.e., following standard apostrophe rule – it should be Li’l’. After all, you are missing the e from the end as well as the ts (or should that be t‘s?!) from the middle.

DS — yep, but Li’l is the accepted abbreviated form, not Lil’

I think “Lil'” is supposed to be short for “Little”
