I have a pronunciation question for UK anons.
Do people normally use this pronunciation?
Because the vowel quality I'm hearing is much more like:
(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?
