    How to pronounce "Last Order" fluently?

    Hi Everyone,

    I'd like to know do I need to pronounce the "T" sound of "Last Order" in fast speech, or just pronounce "Las order"? Please advise.

    There is some kind of stop consonant, which is sometimes attenuated. It might also be replaced sometimes by a glottal stop. But most people (even those who use glottal stops elsewhere) say /la:s'tɔ:də/.
