I have noticed that some speakers of American English pronounce the word "beyond" as "be'ond", glottalizing the "y". I wonder why they do that. What could be wrong with pronouncing the "y"? Maybe you have never noticed this glottalized pronunciation of that word, but keep listening. Or maybe you pronounce the word that way.
