English expression

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?

  1. 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."

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