I am always confused with the pronunication of "Can't" and "Can" in American English. As I know, "t" sound always drops in some cases...then pronounce "Can't" will be same as "Can", right? If so, it would make a big mistake, because "Can't" is opposite of "Can". So in my daily life, I would speak "Cannot" to instead of "Can't"..... For instance, how do I pronounce or listen the following sentence correctly? Please advise.
1. She can't do it. (I think "t" drops when speak fast)
2. She can do it.
