Sometimes Sounds Are Left Out

By November 27, 2012

Follow me on:

If you've learned anything about French pronunciation, you know that it is very common for sounds of words to be omitted as the sounds of one word flow into the next. The same thing happens in Spanish, but to a lesser extent. The process is known by linguists as elision. And, of course, we do the same thing in English, doncha know?
