    Glottalising t

    Hello
    When should I glottalise t's?
    When they come before/after vowels or when they come at end of words?

    Wouldn't it be funny if I have an arabic accent and yet glottalising t's?

    Thank you

    It would be weird!

    You should never glottalise t's.
    Some English dialects use a glottal /t/ but there is no reason why you would want to copy them.
