    Re: /d / to /t/

    It is unclear to me what you are trying to pronounce.

    Had to?
    Hate to?
    Other?

    Why do they do it? Or why have you found that people do it? Either way, it's because some people are lazy.
    How to say it: You say 'had', leaving your tongue on the alveolar margin, then say 'to'.

    It is possible that we have here that case. This is an example of fast colloquial speech.But can assimimilation of place or voice be considered in the example?

    Yes, it's assimilation, or coarticulation.

    Is this homework? You seem to be very interested in this. What do you think it is?
    PS: It's nice to hear a 'please' now and then.

    Remember: no space before a full stop, always a space after a full stop.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
