Thread Name: Any glottal stops down your way?
Subject: RE: Any glottal stops down your way?
Jean Redpath used to tell a story about a cricket match in Cowdenbeath. The light was fading and the defending batsmen were being careful to play out to a draw. A voice came from the pavilion exhorting the batsmen to "'i' oo' a' i'".

In RP, that would be "hit out at it".
