    Question about transcription

    Hello, I need a short transcription. Is this what is said there is:
    "I tried to do things by the book Charlie, the stomach the nine-to-five. You know where it got me?"
    http://sendvid.com/t0gg0yha
    and
    "How many times this week can you
    give Emily SpaghettiOs?
    She likes SpaghettiOs."
    https://sendvid.com/gkev1z8q ?

    Thank you in advance!

    '...I stomached the nine to five...'

    'How many nights this week have you given Emily SpaghettiOs?'

    OK, 'How many nights' instead of 'How many times', correct, as well as
    stomached' instead of 'stomach', but there is rather the definite article 'the'
    preceding 'stomached': 'the stomached the nine-to-five' isn't it?
    How can you hear there the pronoun 'I' before 'stomached'?

    This what I can hear there is 'How many times can you given Emily SpaghettiOs?', don't you
    have the same impression?

    Are you sure this is what you heard and not what your brain just expected in such context?

    Roman and I are not in the habit of mis-reporting what we hear.

    Re: Question about transcription

    The issue concerns the term 'to hear', cause we hear by our brains, brains only equipped with ears.
    And the brain can see or hear or even taste sth. that doesn't exist.
    Professional wine testers told they are tasting luxurious wine, where the wine is cheap and ordinary but served in luxurious container, actually feel it tastes fine (proved by EEG testing of their brains- they really feel it).
    It can be like with this trick when an illusionists throws a coin from one hand to the other one and people see it, but the coin was never thrown, it only looked like that, the man was pretending. That is why I am ask to analyse it more consciously, cause the perception often plays tricks on us...

    As somebody who has studied phonetics on three occasions and holds the International Phonetic Association's Certificate of Proficiency in the Phonetics of English, I think I know what I am doing when I say what I hear.

    He says 'nI stomached the nine-to-five. The "'n" is how "and" often sounds in conversation, and it runs together with the following word, ​I.

    No. He says "How many nights this week have you given Emily SpaghettiOs?


    By the way, the video hosting site you used opened a new browser tab with some rather dodgy content. I suggest you find another site.
