inner rounding, sulcalization

innerrounding: producing LOT/CLOTH vowel in BrE without lip rounding. here, you cup the tongue. Roger Lass calls it sulcalization or hollowing of the dorsal surface

1. Roger Lass
2. Catford
3. Sweet (inner rounding)

There is another way to execute this vowel (LOT vowel), by lifting the soft palate, which increases the vowel height.
