Mensagem:  Beeing /y/ a palatal approximant the segment /t/ before it also tends to become palatal, i.e., the /tsh/ sound like in choose. One segment (sound) tends to influence the other to its right or left in normal speech, so it's a natural  phenomenum, something some speakers of portuguese do with /t/ or /d/ + /i/  (tia [tia or tshia]).

This pause which is called glottal stop  is a characteristic of some varieties of English, for example button [b^'n] where one feels a pause between the vowel and the segment [n].

I think you can palatise the /t/ with no harm, and the /t/ and /d/ sounds tend to disappear if the next word starts with a consonant.

He used power /hi yuzpawer/
