You should’ve been there!


I would’ve been happy without you.



For both the examples in the above can you please mention the phonetic transcription for the contracted form of should’ve been  and would’ve been respectively? I need you to give the phonetic transcription for the contracted form of both the modals that you would have used or spoken in fluent or daily life English please? Are you with me?



Best regards,

Hi,



First, you may hear some small variations in pronunciation in different parts of the US. However, these are the two most common ways of pronouncing these phrases.



Average or formal speech:


/ʃʊdəv bɪn/


/wʊdəv bɪn/



Fast or relaxed speech:


/ʃʊdə bɪn/


/wʊdə bɪn/



Best,

Hi, 



Thank you very much for complimenting me with this request. :)



Unfortunately, my schedule is too busy right now to consider private classes. However, you may be able to make some great practice connections with other learners by continuing your Ebaby! subscription. And, of course, I will always be able to answer your questions here.



My Best,



Amy
