hey!
i didn't really know what section i should put this question in so I'm sorry if my choice is wrong.
in words like e.g. 'about', 'it', 'that' what happens with your tongue when you glottalize the sound 't'? is it just an airway block with your tongue lying still or does it eventually move up (without making any sound by itself of course)?
hope somebody helps me out with this one and thanks in advance!
cheers

Well seeker!

I tried it out.
I find that the tongue kinda lies still.
I think!
