Thread Name: Any glottal stops down your way?
Subject: RE: Any glottal stops down your way?
they sure make it puzzling for non-locals to make out some words!

I can, with a little concentration, DO a glottal stop and approximate that sound. I sorta wish those to whom glottal stops are normal could avoid one long enough to say "Matalan" for me, and save getting out pencil & paper. (My wife picks up dialects and linguistic varitation MUCH faster than I do.)
