Mensagem:  Very interesting, José Roberto. I had already heard of the glottal stop before, but I had only seen it in the middle of a word, such as in button, Batman, fatten, etc. But you're completely right. The exact same phenomenon happens to the expression "nice to meet you". Every time a /t/ sound is followed by a consonant sound, the glottal stop may appear in some varieties of English. Besides, this makes it clear that the /y/ sound (in "you") is a consonant sound, and not the opposite as some people may think.

If anyone is interested in the subject, I suggest the following reading:
