- Hmm... that could be why i interpret {'ll} attached to non-pronouns as /@l/... i feel like in "Ada'll" and "Sandra'll" there's a very short schwa in between the end of the name and the /l/. or maybe it's a lengthening of the name's ending schwa. But it's for sure not simply /'ejd@l/ or /'ejdl=/. I'm probably pronouncing it /'ejd@l=/. -Stephen (Steg) "George Bush, Saddam Hussein, and a rabbi are in an airplane. It starts to crash..."
