    I can/cam believe it

    Hello people!

    Is it possible to assimilate the "n" in can to the following "b" in believe (making it "cam")? Is it something that happens a lot in spoken English? What do you think?

    Thanks!

    Not in my experience.
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....
