Hi everyone!

I know that when your throat is not clean enough you can hawk and go on talking more clearly, or you just clear it and goes on speaking. I would like to know what you call that substance you want to get rid of: He always has... and keeps clearing his throat all the time, specially when he smokes. If there is not such a noun in English, what do you say? He always .... and keeps clearing his thoat...

Thank you
