I am brand new to Italian and have only studied it for a few days.
I was listening to the song "Certamente" by Madreblu and reading along with the lyrics and noticed how when a word that ends with a vowel is followed by a word that begins with a vowel, the ending vowel seems to disappear. Here are some examples from the song. I have bolded and asterisked the letters that seem to disappear.
- "il temporale* aspetto"
- "non riesco* a dormire"
- "che questo caldo arrivi* alla fine"
- "completamente tornerò* alla realtà"
Do vowels flow into each other this way, with the ending vowel being silenced? Am I mishearing it, or is this a form of liaison?
