    Re: "Ain't no"

    I was thinking, there are many cases in which we exclude /t/, especially when it occurs in between vowels or after /n/. Sorry I don't have an IPA keyboard on this computer, but for example: I don't know = /aidou'nou/, Martin = /'mar?n/, kitten = /'kI?n/, and of course, the famous /th'rano/ (Toronto). :)
