I realize some native speakers will create a new sound when linking s/z and y [j]. For example:
Miss you = [mɪʃuː] "mishu"
As you = [/æʒuː] "azhu"
Is it okay if I just say [mɪsjuː] for "miss you" and [æzjuː] for "as you"? Do native speakers always do that specific linking sound? Is it stigmatized in any way?
