Hebrew Glottal Stop

Hi, I posted a message a little while about the Hebrew glottal stop, but I
would like to know more. When exactly is the glottal stop realized in
modern Hebrew? I believe it isn't pronounced / realized at the start of
words, as it is only used as a placeholder for vowels, and there is no
distinction between word beginning and not beginning with it. In what
environments should it be pronounced, if it is at all? Also, when is ayin
realized a glottal stop? Or is this simply ignored (Ashkenazic
pronunciation only). Thanks for all you help!
