weak forms are marked with / /

B. From the above text pick out ANY possible 1. elisions, 2. assimilations, 3. linking phenomena (linking /r/), 4.syllabic consonants (l, r, n) , and 5. Lateral and nasal release showing also how the segments are effected.



1.Elisions:

Forms of the auxiliary verb /hæv/ are are susceptible to elision of word-initial /h/ and and can be pronounced as /əv/ /əvnt/

There is also possible elision of /d/ in

/əʊld/ as it is a case of word-final

/d/ preceded by a consonant and followed

by a consonant in word-initial position, as

well as in /kəʊld/, for the same reason.

There is also a possible elision of /t/

in /ɪkˈsɛpt/ as it is a case of

voiceless consonant /p/ plus /t/ cluster

in word-final position where the

cluster appears before another consonant


5. lateral, nasal release

The only nasal release I see here is in

/ˈɒftən/, where this word is

pronounced as /ˈɒftⁿn/ (elision of schwa)


In /ˈlɪtl/, the release of the plosive

/t/ is produced laterally, because it's

followed by voiced alveolar lateral

liquid /l/. The same applies to /ˈhændl/



2. Assimilations

Voicing assimilations:

‘is’ pronounced as /iz/ because ‘s’ appears

In a voiced environment.
Assimilation of place:

/d/ in /əʊld/ changes to /g/ before /g/ in



/ˈɡrændˌmʌðə/
