    Default How do you pronounce...

    How do you pronounce two words together when the first word ends in a consonant and the second word starts with the same consonant? Do I join the two together or separate them?

    We often blend them into a single sound.

    I usually pronounce them together as an prolonged consonant.
    e.g. 'part time', I pronounce tt as an prolonged stop.
