Hi ghk0603Thank you for explaining means. I wanna know more about that expression in real world. Do you often use that word in your life ?
Will you please tell us why you are asking this question? Did you see articulation used in a sentence? If so, what was the topic? Is it on a list of words? If it was a list, what sort list was it?I suggest that a great deal depends on the context.
Under instruction from my Music Director, there is a clear articulation of about - the and band - that, with a perceptible break between them.
Under normal conversation, or even in formal speech, that perceptible break would vanish, but there would still be a substantial difference between the "-tth-" or "-dth-" and a simple "-th-".
This contrasts with what I understand to be the kind of assimilation to be observed in "great day".
