Elision of consonants. Intrusion

A native speaker's aim in connecting words is maximum ease and efficiency of tongue movement when getting our message across. In minimizing our efforts, we weaken our articulation. If articulation is weakened too much, the sound may disappear altogether, a process known as elision. It is the vowels from unstressed syllables which are the first to be elided in non-precise pronunciation.

Common sound deletions

/ t / and / d /
With consonants, it is / t / and / d / which are most commonly elided, especially when they appear in a consonant cluster. For example,


The same process can occur across word boundaries, for example,

mus(t) be

the firs(t) three

you an(d) me

we stopp(ed) for lunch

This can also take place within affricates /t§/ and /d½/ when preceded by a consonant, e.g.

Lunchtime /ˈlʌntʃtaɪm/ become /ˈlʌnʃtaɪm/  
strange days /ˈstreɪndʒˈdeɪz/ /ˈstreɪnʒˈdeɪz/  

/ h /
The / h / sound is also often deleted. For example,

you shouldn´t (h)ave

tell (h)im.

Intrusion - an extra sound is introduced to lubricate the flow of one vowel to another. The utterance 'we are leaving' needs the /j/ sound between the 'we & the 'are'.

Other common intrusive sounds are the /r/ & /w/

The /w/ sound is needed between 'go' & 'off'.
