English expression

posted by .

e. I'm glad to meet you.
'glad to' is pronounced as a linking sound like one word.
In these words, the d is a voiced sound, and the t is a voiceless sound.
However the articulation points are the same. In this case, the d sound is dropped.
Meet you is pronounced as a linking sound like just one word. The t sound and the j sound are pronounced OO as in church.
-----------------
Is my explanation correct? Would you correct some errors?

  • English expression -

    I agree with your first part -- that the d in pleased isn't usually sounded.

    However, careful speakers don't usually run "meet you" together. This is an individual variation between your explanation and the more enunciated "meet you."

  • English expression -

    The "meet you" are often smeared together in conversation. Sounding
    "mee choo". Notice I said conversation. In formal speaking, one would pronouce the consonants.
