Lookup English Definition:

l    : ['ɛl]
L \L\ ([e^]l), n.
1. An extension at right angles to the length of a main
building, giving to the ground plan a form resembling the
letter L; sometimes less properly applied to a narrower,
or lower, extension in the direction of the length of the
main building; a wing. [Written also {ell}.]
[1913 Webster]

2. (Mech.) A short right-angled pipe fitting, used in
connecting two pipes at right angles. [Written also
{ell}.]
[1913 Webster]


L \L\ ([e^]l) n.
1. L is the twelfth letter of the English alphabet, and a
vocal consonant. It is usually called a semivowel or
liquid. Its form and value are from the Greek, through the
Latin, the form of the Greek letter being from the
Ph[oe]nician, and the ultimate origin prob. Egyptian.
Etymologically, it is most closely related to r and u; as
in pilgrim, peregrine, couch (fr. collocare), aubura (fr.
LL. alburnus).
[1913 Webster]

Note: At the end of monosyllables containing a single vowel,
it is often doubled, as in fall, full, bell; but not
after digraphs, as in foul, fool, prowl, growl, foal.
In English words, the terminating syllable le is
unaccented, the e is silent, and l is preceded by a
voice glide, as in able, eagle, pronounced [=a]"b'l,
[=e]"g'l. See Guide to Pronunciation, [sect]241.
[1913 Webster]

2. As a numeral, L stands for fifty in the English, as in the
Latin language.
[1913 Webster]

For 50 the Romans used the Chalcidian chi, ?, which
assumed the less difficult lapidary type, ?, and was
then easily assimilated to L. --I. Taylor
(The
Alphabet).
[1913 Webster]


L \L\, a.
1. Having the general shape of the (capital) letter L; as, an
L beam, or L-beam.
[Webster 1913 Suppl.]

2. Elevated; -- a symbol for {el.} as an abbreviation of
elevated in elevated road or railroad. -- n. An elevated
road; as, to ride on the L. [Colloq., U. S.]
