/t/ in /hævnt/ changes to /k/ before /g/ in


/gɒt/

/z/ in /ɪz/ changes to /ʒ/ before /ʃ/ in /ʃi/







3.Linking phenomena
There is one instance of linking r in

word-final position as seen in



/ər/ followed by a vowel in /ˈɔːfəl/ (as opposed to /ə/ followed by a consonant in /gʊd/)






4. syllabic consonants (l, r, n):

There is a syllabic /l/ filling the vowel slot in unstressed syllable in /ˈhændl/.


In /ˈɔːfəl/, the weak or neutral vowel

/ə/ that precedes /l/ is omitted so /l/

becomes syllabic

After f,v syllabic n /ˈɒf(ə)n/ is more

common and it is followed by

another consonant.


Syllabic-r is widespread in rhotic accents

(e.g. GenAm) but rarely occurs in

non-rhotic accents (e.g. RP).

Thus, in GenAm /r/

in /ˈgræn(d)ˌmʌðər/ becomes

syllabic, but this is not the case

with non-rhotic RP

pronunciation /ˈgræn(d)ˌmʌðə/
