When people say "wasn't really" really fast, does the tongue position for /n/ in "wasn't" exactly the same as an usual /n/? (like in this description.)
I ask this question because when I try shadowing the sentence "It wasn't really a job." in this video, I find it extremely difficult to speak at the exact same speed as Tom Hanks. If I put my tongue for the /n/ in the "proper" place (alveolar ridge), the /n/ will hinder my /r/ that follows.
Is it just a lack of practice for me or the tongue position for /n/ deviates a little?
