Italian Letter Combination
The letter combination GL has two pronunciations.
1. When GL is followed by I, it’s pronounced [lj], meaning an L sound followed by something like an English y sound, as in "you." It’s similar to the sound in the middle of the word "Italian."
2. In front of any other vowel, GL is pronounced the way it looks: [gl]. This is much less common.
