    1- weləwɑɪk (well I wake) wake is weɪk, I is /ɑɪ/

    2- wɑɪkp (wake up)
    No. /weɪk ʌp/

    3- kɑːm bɪˈliːv (can believe)
    possibly
    4- har'əf (horror of )
    No/harərəv/in AmE, or /hɒrərəv/

    5- fʌkɪn(2) (fucking), mɪksɪn (mixing), ɡəʊɪn(going), sʌmθɪn (something)(2), restɪn (resting), lʌvɪn (loving)
    Not everyone drops their g's

    6-ɡəʊr (go to), bər haʊ, (but how), bər Š nəʊ (but I know), əˈbaʊr ɪd ( about it), If you replaced /r/ with the flap /ɾ/ you might be right for some American accents. In most accents, 'go to' is /
    'ɡəʊtə/, etc. No one is going to understand you if you say any of those words.

    bŠndər rŠʃ aɪ biːtʃ ɔː (Banda Aceh beach),
    /'bŠndə,rŠʃeɪ biːtʃ/

    aɪ nəʊr ­aɪ (I know that I ), ­ər aɪ ( that)
    ?

    =======
    I'm going to stop here. I don't know the dialect you're trying to transcribe.

    7- ­əmiː (2) (than me), kəm bi (can be)
    assimilation.

    8- ən aɪ ( and I ) ............

    9- iːθɪˈəʊpəʊr (Ethiope or)
    linking

    10-ɒfən (off and) ..................

    11- bə ­ə (but the) ...................

    12- ­ə maɪ (that my)........................

    13- əɜːr ( at her year) ........................


    14- wɔːndz waɪf (Warne's wife) .................

    15- bə baɪ (but by
    .....................................

    A few points.
    You've used /r/ for the English 'r'. IPA uses /r/ for the trilled 'r' of Italian etc. An English 'r' strictly is /ɹ/, however for phonemic purposes, and if it's understood that your transcribing English
    , /r/ is accepted.

    You will be much better understood if you use /t/ for 't'. There's no need to transcribe generic English with flaps, taps, glottal stops etc. If you're doing a phonetic transcription of a specific accent or person, they would be appropriate.

    'way' is /we
    ɪ/; 'why' is /waɪ/. You've made this mistake a few times.

    Because you've asked a difficult linguistic question; you seem to be transcribing a weird dialect; and you didn't wait long enough.
    Oh, and it looks like homework.

    I am transcribing an Australian accent . He is a singer singning very fast. I am trying to detect some connected speech aspects such as assimilation, linking, deletion etc.

    Ah, then you are transcibing a specific voice phonetically. In that case it's quite right to write exactly what you hear.

    Thank you. But I wonder whether my detected connected speech aspects are correct or not.
