Note here, guys, sometimes that L or the two Ls that form WILL, they can be pronounced as the /l/ sound. For example: I will go – ɑe wɪl gəʉ – I’ll go – ɑel gəʉ.

But sometimes, they’ll be pronounced like a /w/ sound (/ɫ/), which is called the Dark L – /ɫ/. This’ll be in the pronunciation section. And that sounds like /ɫ/ instead of /l/. Okay? So, instead of: I will go – ɑe wɪl gəʉ – I’ll go – ɑel gəʉ, it’ll sound like: I’ll go – ɑeɫ gəʉ. No /l/ sound there.

It’s called the “Dark L”, but it sounds like a /w/. I’ll go – ɑeɫ gəʉ. I’ll – ɑeɫ. I’ll go – ɑeɫ gəʉ.

And the reason we do this is because there’s a consonant in the next word. Okay? At the very start. If there is the /l/ and then there is a consonant, to link those we turn the /l/ into a /w/ sound, the Dark L /ɫ/.
