From: "Jean-François Colson" <[log in to unmask]> > BTW How do you pronounce |it'd|? Do you insert a vowel between /t/ and /d/ > or do you succeed to say > [Itd]? I say [' It @d]; I insert a vowel. Can you have a sequence of voiceless + voiced (or vice versa; likewise aspirated + unaspirated, ejective + non-ejective) without an intervening schwa? I'd think you'd either have to insert the vowel or assimilate the consonants.
