This question already has an answer here:

The text I'm learning from says that "っ" is used to carry the consonant sound to the back of the first character. I was wondering if this is the case for words composed of more than 2 other characters since all the examples use two.

If I had "ここっち" would this be pronounced "koc-ko-chi" or "ko-koc-chi"?

If it's the second, is it alright for me to think of "っ" as just doubling the next consonant?
