Noun[edit]

ela palatal f (plural eles palatals)

Usage notes[edit]

The ela palatal is used in Catalan to represent the palatal lateral /ʎ/ with a digraph ll, so to indicate where a doubled alveolar lateral is intended /l l/, a punt volat ( · , interpunct) is placed between the two ells to form an ela geminada.
