l [l]

Dene Sųłiné, Cold Lake  -  Phoneme: l [l]  -  IPA: voiced lateral approximant

Word: thelez [θɛlɛz] "urinate"  -  Speaker: SP1

This is the voiced reflex of the lateral fricative. It is often realized as an approximant. 

Comment: although the laterals are understood to be fricatives, many of the voiced lateral fricatives are approximates, as we see in this example.
