comment How can I pronounce 绿 (lü4 - green)?
IPA doesn't account for transition in mouth movements, only current position and resulting sound. If you try to pronounce Jew but with an L, you'll find the "ew" part doesn't sound the same....

If this speaking is usually mixed with a drop in tone on the word before. Like ni/ \hao\ ////ma, it's just a cutesy speak.
