Key Takeaways:

1) Lots of times, when a word ends in T and the next word begins with Y, the sounds blending together will sound like CH.

2) Similarly, many times when a word ends and D and the next word begins with Y, the sounds blending together will sound like J.

3) This sound-blending phenomenon plus the reduction of "you" and "your" to "ya" and "yer" makes for some interesting combinations, especially when native speakers ask questions!
