The research on pronunciation aiming at better understanding of the speech process has largely relied upon analyses of corpora mainly built up of records of utterances of isolated words or sounds of a specific language. However, there are corpora built up of records of connected speech such as the speech in the media, interviews, deliverances of various public speeches and alike but most of the research of these corpora are focused on the syntax and prosody.
This paper aims at displaying the sound alternations that occur in authentic connected speech in communication and greatly influence the auditory processing with listeners, thus affecting the communication.
Our findings rely upon acoustic analyses and spectrograms displaying those sound alternations with the English language and with the Macedonian language.
