I was watching anime and noticed the sentence "In the middle of the city". So I wonder how would I pronounce middle of in American English. Should I connect sounding sort of like "middle+love"? Or should I interrupt sounding more like "middle+really quick pause+of"?
Ps. When I connect the tip of my tongue is still on the top of my mouth when I go about to pronounce "of" which sounds more like "love". When I interrupt I pronounce middle, then my tongue goes to its normal resting position and then I pronounce the "of" sounding exactly like "of".
Pps. Can I ask this kind of question here? If I don't. I'm really sorry, but I couldn't find anything on google or youtube.
