Pronunciation - Consonant to vowel linking

When speaking fluently words link together in different ways.

One way is when one word ends in a consonant sound and the following word begins with a vowel sound. For example, look at the following phrase:

I like it a lot.

The word 'like' ends with the consonant sound /k/.
The word 'it' begins with the consonant sound /I/.
These two words can link together.
Also the word 'it' ends in the consonant sound /t/ and the following word 'a' is a vowel sound by itself.
These two words can also link together.

Like it a lot linking
