Can anyone tell me when syllable-final /l/ is velarized in English?

Thanks.

Subject: Grammaticalisation of IFF

I would be interested to know if anyone out there knows of languages 
which grammaticalise IFF (if and only if) in protasis markers which are 
distinct from those expressing only IF conditions. I will be happy to 
post a summary if there is sufficient interest.
