Will you grab – we’you grab

I was watching a film with subtitles, and the phrase:
“Will you grab her blanket?” sounded like “We’you graber blanket”. I’m Ok with “graber”, but can we drop “l”-sound in “will you”?


In a comment, John Lawler wrote:

Will you is virtually always contracted to /’wiyu/. In fact, will by itself is almost always contracted, if possible with a pronoun (I’ll, you’ll, he’ll, it’ll, they’ll, we’ll, and also will you as noted, and /’wɪli, ‘wɪlət, ‘wɪlay, ‘wɪðe/ for will he, will it, will I, will they).
