El (Л, л) is a letter of the Cyrillic alphabet, representing the consonant /l/ unless it comes before a palatalizing vowel when it represents /lʲ/ (an exception to this is in Serbian and Macedonian, where a separate letter is used to represent /lʲ/). It is descended from the Greek letter lambda. The letter is not to be confused with the capital and small printed Pe (П, п), which have both left and right legs straight. It is the twelfth letter of the Bulgarian alphabet and the thirteenth letter of the Russian alphabet.

The name of the letter in Bulgarian is "лъ" [ɫə]. In dialectal Bulgarian usage, often among the younger generation, <Л> may instead represent a [w] (a similar process has occurred with Polish Ł).
