Am I the only one who can't stop hearing a distinct v sound as in "Tu vas une idée, toi ?" ? I knew it didn't make sense to use aller in this context but I still can't help hearing the guy say 'vas'.
Dictation exercise A1
I have listened to the recording several times and cannot hear a -v in 'tu as'.
But as it is recorded in a very slow manner, maybe it distorts the sounds a bit. There is no reason why a -v would be present as you say.
I know from experience that when I am recording my own voice, sometimes some involuntary sounds creep in, often due to hesitations, but here I don't think this warrants a re-record. Let's see if anyone agrees?
I do hear a slight extra sound there. I don't hear it as a distinct 'v', but definitely sounds like running 'tu' and 'as' together more quickly than in the rest of the dictation, while still pronouncing both fully (so not t'as), or perhaps a point at which the recording wasn't continuous - almost like a splice point ?
I heard it too and wrote it without thinking even though I later knew, of course, that it didn’t make sense.
