Pronunciation rules

I have made several posts about pronunciation before.  I continue to work on it.

The pronunciation rules

  1. Resyllabification
  2. Syllable-final closure (unrelease)
  3. Nasal assimilation
  4. ㄴ to ㄹ assimilation
  5. Tensification
  6. Aspiration and the /ㅎ/ weakening
  7. Double consonant reduction
  8. Palatalization
  9. Place assimilation

Which pronunciation rules come into play for these words?

행복하였지요  x  x
찾아왔지요 x  x
