The paper presents the results of a contrastive experimental phonetic study of assimilation phenomena appearing at the so-called outer-sandhi. The similarities and differences between German and Bulgarian in this process, which is physiologically conditioned, but specifically differentiated for the respective language systems, are investigated. Their close dependence upon a number of factors is taken into consideration. The results of the study can be used as the basis for the correction of some orthoepic rules in the field of „interword“ phonetics and in speech synthesis. The results may also be directly used in the teaching of phonetics to Bulgarian learners of German and vice versa.
