A weird thing I noticed recently when i would speak what i read is that eclipsis and lenition are necessary in speech to maintain flow (course), but when certain words come up they just "feel" like they need to change. Its interesting how somehow, it starts to come on its own.

Lenition has its moments where i mistake it for eclipsis (standalone words, mostly), but in the context of a sentence it would feel unnatural to do one thing over another.
