An affectionate term for the seaport city of Gloucester, MA, highlighting its inhabitants' habitual dropping of the letter "r" in normal speech. Gloucester is often mispronounced by tourists as "glochester" or "glow-ster." Therefore, by using the "glosta" pronunciation, visitors are more likely to fit in locally.
