Your mom's a voiceless alveolar stop.
Police said they spent some time working out if they could charge the man with being armed with a weapon, as technically he was armed with part of a fish.

An unreleased consonant is not the name thing as a glottal stop. NOT. THE SAME. THING. :|

I don't know if your intention was to have me hearing Dr. Cox, but that's what happened.

AN 'N' IS NOT THE SAME THING AS AN 'S.' NOT. THE. NAME. THING.

Anyone that works in radio, voice acting or voiceover is often taught to pronounce the last consonant in every word. It's not really noticeable until you hear it next to an amateur, but we are fairly accustomed to "professional-sounding" voices being very clear on the consonants in question. For voice actors, saying "elephan' gun" would likely result in a retake. It makes the words sound "run-together" and while it's perfectly acceptable for day-to-day conversation, it's generally not in the recording industry.

Don't believe me? Write down a couple of lines from a radio commercial, and have a friend read them while you record it. (Don't record yourself.) Then compare the recording to the original, and you'll see what I'm talking about.

Comic is still shit. Now you'll imagine Batman is cockney? Cockneys have more than one feature to their accent. Also, the very first sentence emphasises that standard american and cockney accents differ in their use of glottal stops, Batman is written to have an american accent presumably, so he won't sound cockney.

Knowing about glottal stops doesn't make anything cockney! whatashitcomic
