John was doing a puzzle today and confused himself with the clues by accidentally covering one of the clue numbers on the crossword with the dot from the i he’d put in for one of his answers.
He showed me what he’d done and referred to the large tittle he’d put in.
This confused me too …
So both of us confused!
Of course I Googled it and discovered that the tittle is the dot on the top of an i or a j.
Extra Info From Me
It turns out that the word tittle is archaic, so not in regular usage. The more modern term is probably a superscript dot!
Tittle also means a little bit, tiny amount, small piece etc
