    It is not: c'e` l'ho
    but: ce l'ho
    here /ce/ is only a particle that emphasizes the meaning and allows /telefono/
    to be put at the start of the sentence.
    Another possibility: No, perche` non ho il telefono.

    Another sentence is:
    -- qui non c'e` nessuno.
    mening:
    -- qui non ci e` nessuno;
    where /ci/ is again an emphasizing particle referring to the place (here, in this place).
    The particles {ci,ce,vi} has several different meanings, and many examples should be learned to master them.
