Contracting: MODAL VERBS + HAVE
So, in this video I’m going to teach you how to contract HAVE onto MODAL VERBS like: SHOULD, WILL, COULD.
Now, there can be a few pronunciation differences for HAVE when it’s contracted based on if the word links to the next word or not.
If the word that follows the contracted HAVE begins with a vowel, you’re going to pronounce the /v/ sound.
If it doesn’t begin with a vowel, you can drop the /v/ sound and just say /ə/ or /ɐ/. Okay?
So, /ɐv/, /əv/ with a vowel after it, or just /ɐ(v)/, /ə(v)/ without a vowel, with a consonant.
