That's part of it, but mostly sandhi is when a word changes because of its
surroundings. Like in Arabic, the l in the article "al" can be absorbed if
the first letter of the word it goes to begins with a certain letter. And as
already mentioned, the tone of a word can change because of the words
surrounding it. That's sandhi.
