Progressive assimilation
In linguistics, assimilation is a common phonological process by which one sound becomes more like a nearby sound. This can occur either within a word or between words. In rapid speech, for example, "handbag" is often pronounced [ˈhæmbæɡ]. As in this example, sound segments typically assimilate to a following sound (this is called regressive or anticipatory assimilation), but they may also assimilate to a preceding one (progressive assimilation). While assimilation most commonly occurs between immediately adjacent sounds, it may occur between sounds separated by others ("assimilation at a distance").
Assimilation can be synchronic—that is, an active process in a language at a given point in time—or diachronic: That is, a historical sound change.
A related process is coarticulation where one segment influences another to produce an allophonic variation, such as vowels acquiring the feature nasal before nasal consonants when the velum opens prematurely or /b/ becoming labialised as in "boot". This article describes both processes under the term assimilation.

Vestiges of progressive voicing assimilation in NEY | Mendele | מענדעלע
EY famously employs the “Slavic” habit of regressive voicing assimilation in obstruent clusters. NEY is described as having an even more pervasive application than other EY dialects, namely assimilation also applies across word boundaries: “host genug” “hozd genug” etc.
