Yeah, the [v] tends to assimilate into an [f] - losing
voice because it gets run into the following [t], which is voiceless.
I pronounce the above something like [Aj ''h&:f t@ 'gEt mi w@ n@ Douz]
I'm using the Usenet ASCII-IPA transliteration; what do
folks usually use in this group?
A = lowercase script a = open back unrounded vowel = "a" in "father"
& = lowercase ae ligature = open/mid-open front unrounded vowel = "a" in "cat"
@ = schwa = "a" in "about" = "u" in "putt"
E = lowercase epsilon = open-mid front unrounded vowel = "e" in "met"
i = i = "i" in "machine" = "ee" in "reed" (or "Reed" :))
o = o = "o" in "nose" minus the u-glide
u = u = "oo" in "noose"
