Common Words and Phrases in Connected Speech

Some very common words have weak forms that are normally used in connected speech.  While this is very normal in spoken language, the written form should only be used in very informal language (texting, emailing to a friend, social media, etc.)

There are two videos below:  the first focuses on shoulda, woulda, and coulda.  The second video is called Learn American English with Alligators where the focus is on speech reductions.
