Would you let me get the IPA (phonetic alphabet) for ‘Dill’ll’?

    There are three possibilities:

    /'dɪləl/

    /'dɪləl/

    /'dɪll/

    In all cases this represents a two-syllable pronunciation.
    See

    There is a fourth possibility in IPA, mentioned in the Wikipedia article "Syllabic consonant," but I don't know how to represent it in this forum. It does not even show up when I look at that article with my browser.
