Nope. I think [ˈfaʔə] would be heard as "fatter", since [ʔ] is not, far as I know, a possible allophone of /k/. An unreleased /k/ may sound similar to [ʔ], but isn't the same.

In Cockney any of unstressed postvocalic /p t k/ (but never /tʃ/) can be glottalised, sometimes even /d/ and /s/ (see AoE 2). Among those, /t/ is the most often glottalised consonant, but it's more or less equally common to flap it between vowels. Cockney has a lot of free variation.

How many native speakers pronounce nouns pluralized with voicing of the final consonant as voiceless? I mean words like 'leaf - leaves', 'life - lives' and whatever others there are.

I normally pronounce them voiceless unless I'm overcorrecting myself to try and sound proper. Lately I've not been caring much about "Conventional English" and prescribed rules on how we should speak so I try not to "correct" myself.

Not only do I voice the underlying /f/ here, I sometimes overgeneralise this to roofs as well.

I only keep them unvoiced if I'm talking in Newspeak, which isn't necessarily English. I think that's the only way: like geese not gooses or moose and mooses. I personally wouldn't associate /laɪfs/ with educated speech :para:

Interesting. I think I've always associated "leaves" vs. "leafs" and such with formal/literary speech. :lol:
