Pronounciation: Linking words

When people speak fast, they link words together. Linking words and phrases in English are used to combine clauses or sentences presenting contrast, comparison and supposition.

  • Native speakers of English do this naturally. Learning to correctly link words can result in more fluent sounding English. If you do not know how to use it in a right way, you will sound foreign to them.

e.g. Do you go out, don’t you? (You must say like = donchou?)

e.g. Did you go out last night, didn’t you? (You must say as =di jyou?
