ejectives in English

In his webblog of the 8th of December, 2011, John Wells wrote about ejectives in English. Our attention was drawn to an interview given by the snooker player Judd Trump who pronounced the words think and back with a word-final ejective [kʼ]. I also heard a [] in walk and an ejective [pʼ] in keep. Here are several extracts from the interview.

1. think

2. think
3. back
4. back
5. back

6. walk
7. keep
