Appele vs. Appelle
So, I am not seeing a pattern with appeller. Sometimes it seems to be spelled with one l and sometimes with two lls. (je m'appelle v je m'appele). Are they two different words? Does it make a difference how you spell it when you're talking about a phone conversation v when you're talking about what you call yourself? Does it matter it it's being used reflexively? I can't figure it out and thus can't memorize it. If anyone understands what I am asking and can explain it to me, I would be much appreciative. Thanks in advance.
Thank you for your answer to my query. I don't think it was spelling errors that I was seeing, but just the fact that I couldn't remember when there were one or two ls. georgeoftruth's table helped me to see the pattern. I am copying it down and will hopefully keep it stuck in my memory.
Just a small comment about the verb "essayer" in that link. Both "j'essaye" and "j'essaie" are accepted spellings. Similar for the conjugations for "tu," "il," and "ils." Tex made it sound like the change from "y" to "i" is necessary. Yes, "i" is more common, but "y" is also correct.
