Thread Name: Any glottal stops down your way?
Subject: RE: Any glottal stops down your way?
I grew up in Michigan and ending "t"s were usually glottal stops. "What" was pronounced "Wha'" with that "stop" at the end of it.   Same with words like It, that, caught, bat, ...... on and on. Ending t was a glottal sound.    Maybe we were just lazy talkers in Flint, where I grew up.
