    Small "tsu" at the end of word...

    In Japanese comics I often find words that has small tsu (っ or ッ) at the end of word, e.g. "はっ", "ギッ" (mostly used for sound effects). How do the pronounced..?

    I know I'm late here... but a small っ or ッ at the end of a word denotes a sudden stop, as if the speaker has been cut off. When it is in the middle of a word, it doubles the consonant that follows it.
