Lenition or Elision or What?

There is a phonetic phenomenon in Senjecan that occurs when the
personal pronoun nominative + the present tense marker are prefixed to
a verbnoun with an initial vowel.
This becomes mïâta. m_j'at_da
Is there a proper name for this phenomenon? It doesn't seem to me to
be either lenition (as David Crystal defines it) or elision.
