THE APPRENTICE is on a distinguished road
Default Eception to the rule Flap or tap /d/ and /t/

Dear teachers and members:

In american English (AmE), when an alveolar /t/ or /d/ is intervocalic and the second vowel is unstressed, a flap or tap /t/ or /d/ occurs.

Matter; /ˈmærər/ City; /ˈsɪrɪ/; water; /ˈwɔrər/; Ladder; /ˈlærər/ Muddy; /ˈmʌrɪ/; Addict /ˈærɪkt/.

I would like to know what happen in the following cases:

1) Bad attitude / bæd ˈætɪˌtud / :/ bærætɪˌtud /; / ˈbærætɪˌtud /

In this phrase when the linking sound between BAD and ATTITUDE is made, a flap /d/ ocurrs, so what happens with the stress in the word ATTITUDE; does it desappear or change position?

The same happens with these twos phrases:

1) Bad apple / bæd ˈæpəl /

2) Good option / ɡʊd ˈɒpʃən /

Thanks and regards.
