Is there a difference between aiguë and aigüe?

In Larousse I can only find aiguë for the English "Shrill" or "Acute"

Bonjour William ! The difference between the two is simply a change of spelling rule. As the lesson states, "Note that before the 1990's, the alternative " -uë " was the accepted spelling, and is still deemed acceptable now." Therefore, both "aigüe" and "aiguë" are correct, and they're pronounced the same :) I hope that's helpful! À bientôt !
