Glowcesster, Gloster, Glowster?

Whilst doing some research, I came across the following Wiki entry (disputed pronunciation) that details common mis/alternative pronunciation of English words. I hope you are reading this Oleg 🙂
Anyway, we were never taught the International Phonetic Alphabet at school (for example, ?d??.g?.ba?t is one possible pronunciation of the word gigabyte), so I ended up referring to the separate entry on that for help in understanding just what the differences are. Oleg was surprised that I did not know the phonetic alphabet already, last time we met, as he often refers to it in his language studies.

(In case you are interested, the town’s spelling is Gloucester, and is pronounced gloster…)
