The twelfth letter of the alphabet, usually denominated a semi-vowel, or a liquid, and with only one sound in English, as in like, canal. At the end of monosyllables it is often doubled, as in fall, full, but not after diphthongs and digraphs, as foul, foal, &c. As a numeral it stands for 50; lb. stands for pound weight, and lbs. for pounds.
