I have a pronunciation question for UK anons.

Do people normally use this pronunciation?
en.wiktionary.org/wiki/gap#English

Because the vowel quality I'm hearing is much more like:
en.wiktionary.org/wiki/gap#Polish
(Deep-throated frogginess aside)

Because when I think about a really toffee-nosed accent, "gap" sounds more like "ghep" than like the UK pronunciation above. I can hardly tell the difference between the Polish "gap" and the RP "gap," but the toff RP "gap" sounds very distinct. Is this distinction dying out? Or do toffs just use a longer vowel?

(Overall point is the pronunciation of the /ae/ vowel, not just the word gap.)

Gap rhymes with

Nap, bap, lap, yap, cap, sap, tap, rap, map, zap

It does not rhyme with pep, rep,

Nah nobody says gep in England

UK anon here:

Posh folk say: "Gyap"

Scrubs like me say: "gap"
