Let's take a look at the natural American pronunciation of this key sentence:
Give me a minute because I am kind of busy - which usually sounds like:
Gimme a minute / cuz-ahm kinda busy
This is good practice for liaison, reduction, and chunking. You can sound more natural!
In spoken American English, we usually pronounce...
- give me → gimme
- because → cuz
- I'm → ahm
- kind of → kinda
