Assimilation is the process of sound change where one sound is influenced or modified by other sounds. There are two types of assimilation:

1. Regressive assimilation
It happens when the following sound in a word influences the preceding sound.


·          The letter “N” is written in a capital letter since it is still in the form of abstract nasal.
·         You can find a lot of example of regressive assimilation in Bahasa Indonesia.

2.   Progressive assimilation
It happens when the preceding sound influences the following sound since the preceding sound is too dominant.
