Thank you, Mahantongo.In some accents of English, or in the pronunciation of some speakers (especially those with ill-fitting false teeth ), perhaps. However, in my own accent, or those with which I am most amiliar, no, it doesn't sound like that at all.
"You guys"???????????????The reason why I'm asking this is when you guys say, ... [etc.]
One person who speaks like that is Sean Connery. I do not know whether he always speaks like that because I have not had the chance to converse with him but he most definitely did in some of his films...Hi
Does "-s + you" sound like "shoe" when it is pronounced fast in conversation--for example, "I miss you" or "He likes you"?
Quite frankly, I have never been suspected of speaking Scottish English , but I also do that in fast speech. It simply saves time. I think it is certainly not limited to Scottish English and Sean Connery was just an example...Sean Connery has very "idiolectic" pronunciation, but there are a number of sound combinations that become 'sh' in some Scottish accents, esp. in fast speech. (E.g r + s and s + y.) It's a feature of own my speech when talking with family and friends but not in more formal situations.
I once had an Indian colleague who, unlike Sean Connery, genuinely mixed the 's' and 'sh' sounds and had the tendency to fall asleep in his office, hidden from the cruel world. So we had situations like: Me: Mr...., the locksmith is waiting for you and has been for 3 quarters of an hour. Mr.... : Oh, ish he shtill shitting there?"What's the meaning of shit? It's what Sean Connery says to his dog." Note: not "what a Scotsman says to his dog".
Agreed, 't' and 'd' assimilate with the 'yod' far more often than 's' and 'z', but the latter kind of assimilation also occurs in the right conditions (fast enough speech).That's right; in fact "why choose" and "white shoes" are known as a limiting pair - the very slight difference between them is important in conveying meaning.
But the forms without 'T' (which I suppose would be "miss you" and "miss shoe" / "me shoe") aren't nearly so close together because the 'S' is pronounced in a different part of the mouth from 'T', and doesn't usually assimilate with the yod (= the 'Y' sound).
