Let’s have a look!

1. Suggestion

lets-have-a-look

Notice the glottal stop again for the t in “let’s”. This makes it much easier. This is a suggestion, for example if you tell the doctor you’ve hurt your knee, she might say “Let’s have a look.”

 
2. Request

lets-have-a-look2

This means “Please let me see.”, though less polite, and is said with higher key and more stress than before.
