    What is the exact phonetic transcription of the following sentence?

    "I didn't see him yesterday"

    Please tell me the answer.

    with many thanks,
    Thilaga

    Re: doubt in transcription

    There are different possibilities. For instance, some people would drop the second 'd' in 'didn't' and say /dInt/ while others would say it as two syllables, with a schwa after the second 'd'.
