what is the difference between Glottal stop and Silent letters ????

Tuesday, August 22nd 2017

    Hi Abdellah — thanks for your question. Silent letters (like the b in debt, sounding like ‘det’) are totally silent, as if they don’t exist, but the glottal stop causes a ‘catch’ in the throat. I tried to demonstrate this in the video :-)

Thanks for your lesson, Gill.
Just little note – I think that the homonyms are the words with same spelling and different meaning. The words with same sound and different meaning are homophones.
