Other questions about "Prepare"

Q: I will prepare myself and tell you soa natural?
A: × I will prepare myself and tell you
✓ I’ll prepare myself to tell you.

Technically “I will” is correct, but in spoken English the contraction “I’ll” is used much more during conversation.

“To” also seems more natural. The preparation is FOR telling them in the near future. So “to” makes more sense to me.

I’ll = I + will: take off the first two letters w and i. Don’t pronounce them either.

“I’ll” is not to be confused will the word “ill” meaning sickness.
“I'll unpunctuated looks like “ill,” so be mindful of context.

International Phonetic Alphabet pronunciation of “I’ll”: /īl/
“I will”: /ī/ + /wil,wəl/
“ill”: /il/
