Lambdacism (from the Greek letter ?) is the inability to pronounce or difficulty in pronouncing l sounds.[1] In general, /r/ is usually substituted for /l/, as in Japanese.

A common form of lambdacism is lallation. The substitution of /l/ for /?/ in pronunciation, it is a common feature of Japanese and Korean pronunciation of English. Substitution of /l/ for /n/ at the beginning of a word or syllable (or the reverse at the end) is also a feature in certain East Asian languages, such as the Northern dialect of Vietnamese as well as Cantonese and Thai.
