Cli-in and Ki-in?
It’s very cute and I wonder what the linguistic heritage is. I assume it’s a vestige of a British lineage.
I am always amazed when ancestral vestigial linguistic traces persist in modern linguistic pools in a country that’s so connected and addicted to a television that generally uses “proper” American annunciation.
The cute thing about Connecticut’s glottal stop is that the rest of their accent is no accent at all. To me, the missing Ts is the only tell that someone’s from CT.
