What a mess: the syllables have mixed! Are you able to put them back in order?
The column on the right side of the window contains a list of syllables. Put together, they form a word. Problem is that they are obviously not in the correct order! Your work is to restore order in this jumble…
How does it work?
A click on a brick makes the letter appear in the main column. If the syllable is at its right place in the word, it will appear in green (success !); if not, it will appear in red (error…).
You can click anytime on the button refresh to erase your attempt and give it a new try. Beware! Reloading the page would trigger the display of a new set of syllables. This feature can be more simply achieved by hitting the Nouveau mot ! button. Moreover, the button would prevent the reloading of the entire database.

- inserting parasitic syllables
