The Limited Times

Now you can see non-English news...

Will you get a 10/10 on this double consonant test?


QUIZ - Our language is littered with facetious words with twin letters. Do you know how to put them in the right place? Le Figaro offers you to take the test.

Double letters are often sources of error, to our delight.

If in speech, double consonants pose no problem for us, when it comes to writing them, we raise the pen in the air.

Do we write "erroneous" or "erroneous"?

"Balad" or "ballad"?

Some do not leave the shadow of a doubt on the doubling of their consonant like the verb “to pass”.

If there was only one "s", everyone would pronounce "pazer".

In short, it is a real headache.

And yet, double consonants are necessary.

One letter less or more, the word changes meaning.

The "ballad" does not mean the same thing as "ballad", which designates a poetic or musical work...

Fortunately, not all letters of the alphabet are doubled.

Some never double, such as:

h, j, q, v, w, and x


All that remains is to hold them back.

So, will you be able to pass this Figaro

test on double consonants

without fail ?
