This letter is pronounced as in English. Variously combined with vowels it is frequently made use of in the Visayan Dialect to form adjectives, nouns and plural verbal forms, e.g. bumulúthò, pumalaháyag, kalalát-an, sululátan, isulúlat, nagilinúm silá, nagilísol silá, nagdaláyaw silá, nagailinútud silá, etc. (Búthò, paháyag, láut, sulát, inúm, ísol, dáyaw, útud, etc.).

Many terms that in Hiligáynon contain the letter "l" have the letter "r" instead in Hiniráya, or Binukídnon, e.g. walâ-warâ, ílog-írog, dalága-darága, malayô-marayô, lángsì-rángsì, etc.
