    Pronunciation of "You and I"

    Hi All,

    I'd like to know I always hear native people say "You and I" as "You and Die" come they would say that like this? Please advise.

    it is liaison in connected speech.

    you and i = you an die
    you and i = you nnie (nd > n)

    s and p = smp (assimilation of place n > m, beause of /p/)
    npr = mpr
    r and b (recall hiphop r and b) = r m b
