In the process of acceptance or refusal of variant pronunciations, t-glottaling seems to have experienced some stigmatization. Despite the recognized presence of t-glottaling in Received Pronunciation, recent calls for a ‘remodelling’ of this accent, and a changing trend, especially among young RP speakers, an analysis of contemporary EFL pronouncing dictionaries - i.e. An English Pronouncing Dictionary (EPD), Longman Pronunciation Dictionary (LPD) and The Oxford Dictionary of Pronunciation for Current English (ODP) - reveals no recording of it. Some of the questions, addressed by this paper, are: do EFL pronouncing dictionaries avoid transcribing glottal stop just because it is an allophone of /t/? Are there or could there be other reasons for concealing the spread of such a non-standard feature?
