Would you say "not yet" or "nochyet" - I have a friend who says the latter and was wondering if that was an acceptable way or saying it (since I know you can combine some sounds e.g. would you becomes woodjew)
I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
I would drop the /t/ which I believe is a feature of connected speech called elision. And perhaps there's a glottal stop in there, too.
I think if you said it like previously mentioned with the /tʃ/ sound that's known as assimilation.
Depending on who I'm talking to and how fast I'm speaking, there would be no glottal stop, one glottal stop or two glottal stops in there.
Not yet, noʔyet, noʔyeʔ.

I would agree with Roman55 for BrE. But it depends on the situation, the speed at which you are talking, and also to whom you are speaking. In formal situations such as interviews then probably no glottal stops. With friends or in less formal environments then probably either one or two would be used.
