Interested in Language
Please help me with the following. Below is a rule from a book on pronunciation.
"2. consonant + consonant assimilation
Some consonant sounds can join together to form a different sound (assimilate).
Most commonly this happens to /t/, /d/ & /n/:
didnít_you ! ! t + j = tʃ
Anne_Ball ! n + b = m
That_man! ! t + m = p"
My question is whether as a result of the assimilation at hand dn't will be didtsh you, am ball, thap man. In other words, the last sound of the first word is assigned while the first sound of the second word remains the same. Is it true?
Please listen to a veru short record attached where those examples are pronounce. Thank you.
