write), and also modern elision, which often occurs in everyday life. speech, at a fast pace. I would like to dwell on the examples of modern elision. So, the most common cases of modern elizia, selected by us from modern audio sources, are: omission of occlusive alveolar sounds / t, d /, for example. combined last night, second ring; loss of interdental fricative fricative consonants, for example. in the words months, clothes; disappearance of the consonant preceding the interdental sound, for example. in the words fifth, sixth; loss of labial-tooth crevice sound in the preposition of before the interdental consonant, as well as other consonant sounds at a faster pace, for example. point of that box of pens; loss of labial-tooth fissure consonant sound in front of the bow sonant, for example. give me three rings; reduction of double consonant, ex. the next train, you’ve got to scrawl it. It is noted that assimilation, reduction and elision form certain modern trends in pronunciation, namely: “Smoothing” of a series of diphthongs; transition triftongov in the category monofthongov; omission of a consonant sound / j / in words like suit, student, etc .; fusion of consonant sounds / tj / and / dj / in stressed syllables, at which the words Tuesday, reduce sound like Chooseday, rejuice; misuse of the posterior nasal sonant in words where there are no endings –ing (chicken, garden). omission of pharyngeal sound / h /;

the use of a hard attack instead of a consonant at the end of words, as well as in the position between vowels. The phonetic study, during which an attempt was made to reveal the degree of perception of Russian-speaking students studying English and native speakers of English of a coherent text containing modified forms, showed that the modification of sounds cannot occur without the influence of such prosodic components as speech rate, pause, loudness and the purpose of the utterance. The faster the sentence is pronounced, the richer the sound material is by assimilative processes. According to the results of the phonetic study, after analyzing and comparing the protocols with the responses of the English and Russian-speaking bilinguals, a sharp contrast was established in the depth of perception of the modified speech. The results of the study showed that modifications of sounds in coherent speech do not interfere with communication of speakers of English from different regions, but prevent adequate perception by Russian-speaking bilinguals. The significance of the findings is that knowledge of the modification of words under the influence of the reduction of vowels, various kinds of assimilations and elision facilitates the perception of the "seamless" structure of speech. This leads to the conclusion that in perception of sounding speech it is necessary to rely not only on vocabulary and grammar, but also to take into account the phonetic features of pronunciation and modification of sounds. In our opinion, it is necessary to pay

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
