    please write this audio clip phonetically in English

    http://drop.io/0xfl5di

    can someone sound out the above short audio clip for me phonetically (in English)?

    I'm pretty sure he is saying с официанткой, but it sounds to me like it is pronounced differently than it is spelled. Please help!

    Thanks!

    Does this look like correction pronunciation?

    There is definitely the "ы" sound after the "ц" and before the "ант".

    You are right of course. I think it is pronounced so quickly and minimally, do you think a native speaker would notice if the ы sound was left out of the word? (I guess that's why you reduced the size of the letter ы when you typed it, to accentuate that it is barely there audibly, right?)

    It's pronounced very well, like the speaker is making a recording.
    tsə.fi.tsɨ.ˈant.kəɪ
    the only thing it there is this /t/ at the beginning, but I think it’s a stray sound /t/ from a previous word.
