Re: Languages
I can identify no similar difference between 'stop' and 'top' though.
If I try to emphasize the sounds, then both are alike.
If I speak normally, but pay attention to my movements (particularly the tongue), then there is a difference. The tongue movement is more forceful for the 't' in "top" than in "stop".
