Today's request comes from Belkada Adel in Algeria. He's sent me a voice request through the Daily Dose of English request form at Linguaspectrum. "Hello Richard. I am Belkada Adel from Algeria and I'd like to ask you about the glottal stop. Could you help me in using it by giving me rules? Thank you, my dear teacher. Goodbye." Now that's an interesting question. It's probably also left a lot of viewers scratching their heads asking themselves "What on earth is a glottal stop?" It's probably best if I tell you what a glottal stop is before I tell you how to use it.
