It cost an arm and a leg!

it cost an arm and a leg

The “t” in “it” changes because of the following /k/, which is pronounced with the back of the tongue, so we pronounce the “t” in the same place, but be careful not to remove your tongue between the sounds. You may need to practice. Notice all the /ə/ (schwa) sounds on weak vowels. Also, “and” loses its “d”.

This means that something was very expensive.
