What are palatal consonants?
How many palatal consonalt's do you have?

1. can't you
2. could you
3. miss you
4. is your

In the four cases, we can find palatalization. The t,d,s,z sounds are changed into palatals when they are pronounced as a linking sound. It's hard to write down the phonetic symbols here.
Is my explanation correct?
