"Wilis" or "Willies"
Posted 24 January 2003 - 03:58 AM
I always thought it was "Wilis" but I recently put both spellings in a search engine WITH the word "Giselle" and I got a greater number of results with "Willies"!! So which spelling is correct? It almost seems like nobody knows for sure.
My guess is that the one version is based on the history of the word and the other is used so that the person reading the word can pronounce it correctly. That is my take on it so far. One version is "proper" and the other is "practical".
How do you see it?
