Examples of LILT in a Sentence

  1. Rosa de Winter-Levy:

    ‘I saw Anne Frank and Peter van Pels in Westerbork. They were always together. (…) In Westerbork Anne was lovely, so radiant that her beauty flowed over into Peter. (…) Perhaps it’s not the right expression to say that her eyes were radiant. But they had a glow, if you know what I mean. And her movements, her looks, had such a lilt to them that I often asked myself: Can she possibly be happy? She was happy in Westerbork, though that seems almost incredible.’
