    • In words bearing stress on the third last syllable, and in which the penultimate syllable contains a schwa followed by either l or r, there is a tendency for the schwa to be elided.
    • Unstressed o may be more or less reduced to the value of SCHWA, or elided altogether.
    • As a result, the coach has Bill as its antecedent (of some sort), hence making it possible for the second elided pronoun, which bears a -occurrence, to be resolved.
