and little lambs eat ivy

A class of phonological sound junctures, like an eggcorn, called an oronym describes what occurs verses honouring stops and pauses and eliding over them—like I scream for ice cream, four candles instead of fork handles.
In most other languages it retains its original sense—after the Greek ὄρος for studying the naming-conventions of mountains and mountain-dwellers and the continuum or isolation among valley residents, and in a sense, the pronunciation and stress differences could be like a distinct alpine dialect. A reverse example, presented to make it hard for the listener or reader to interpret, due to an intentional challenging presentation—like in the novelty song, “Mairzy Doats” (and dozy doats).
