Is there a term in English phonetics/phonology for the representation|
of rapid (or relaxed) speech phenomena using ordinary spelling
(instead of phonetic transcription), examples of which would be
'wanna' (to represent not only /t/ deletion in both 'want' and 'to'
but also pronouncing shwa instead of [u]) and searchin' (to represen
pronouncing [n] instead of the velar nasal)?
