    TH in fast speech (American Accent)

    Hey guys,

    how do you pronounce the "th" (both /T/ and /­/ sound in fast speech?

    I'm talking about American Accent

    For example: "with + you"

    Re: TH in fast speech (American Accent)

    Ok, let me explain again

    What happens with "th" sound in fast speech?

    I've heard the th sounds is said like /tʃ/ before "you" or another consonant.

    Is that true?


    with you = /witʃ ju:/

    American accents also vary. From the different ones I've heard it could be any one of these, with some consonant elision happening

    /wi­ ju:/ /wit tʃu:/, /wid dzju:/ /wit tju:/

    Thank you, Damo!

    Is there any book that teaches these variations?

    Any suggestion, everyone?
