Phonetic Graffiti

The following exercise is for you to practise reading phonetic script. The words of the text you have to reconstruct have been transcribed in phonetic script. The transcription refers to the text being spoken at a normal speed by a native speaker, so some words are linked together and there are elisions. Your task is to reconstruct the text by guessing what words are hidden behind their phonetic transcription.
