Subject: RE: Any glottal stops down your way?
GUEST:

Pronounce the word AUK. That K on the end causes the throat to close. Ya can hear the sound in the Scottish loCH. In Canada, we'd say it like loCK, and the throat doesn't fully close. A full glottal stop makes it sound like someone's about to spit from somewhere inside the throat..
