Well,but one single thing: in modern spanish, /L/ is still written "ll", a different thing is that the lateral palatal is evolving into /j/ (iodization, a.k.a. "yeismo"). Though it is very widespread, the Real Academia says that the right pronnouncing is /L/ (and so I believe). I think this is a phenomenon with a southern spanish origin that is spreading north (in Andalusia you will never hear /L/, while you may easily in North Castille) and affecting the other languages within spain (i'm speaking as a catalan...) Does iodization take place in Portuguese?
