False Friends

Note the role (optional) of / ʤ / in replacing / d / + / j / in verbs like "educate" / ˈeʤʊkeɪt / and "graduate" / ˈgræʤʊeɪt /, nouns such as "graduate" / ˈgræʤʊət / and adjectives such as "gradual" / ˈgræʤʊəl /. This type of assimilation is known as coalescence. See Wikipedia on Yod-coalescence.
