Subject: RE: Any glottal stops down your way?
Not a glottal, but. . .

My English grandmother said buTTer, and the TT was clear. Canadians say buDDer, but the DD is somewhat softer. The spoken language here takes the 'lazy' way. However, I wouldn't care to say 'lazy' is easier, although it usually is.
