Etymology

Proposed in 1908 as part of the new Latvian spelling by the scientific commission headed by K. M?lenbahs, which was accepted and began to be taught in schools in 1909. Prior to that, Latvian had been written in German Fraktur, and sporadically in Cyrillic.

Pronunciation

Letter

H

h (upper case F, lower case f)

  1. The twelfth letter of the Latvian alphabet, called h? and written in the Latin script.

Usage notes

The letter H/h (like F/f, and O/o representing [o], [o:] instead of [u]) is found only in words of foreign origin (borrowings). Note that it represents the sound of IPA [x] (like German machen, ach), not (as in most other alphabets based on the Latin script) the sound of IPA [h].

Maltese

Pronunciation

  • (phoneme) IPA(key): /-/, /:/, /j/, /w/, /?/

Letter

h (upper case H)

  1. The tenth letter of the Maltese alphabet, written in the Latin script.

Usage notes

  • In contemporary Maltese, h remains a true consonant [?] in the following cases:
    • in word-final position or when being the last radical of a verb: ikrah ['?kra?], jixbhu ['jp];
    • before the negative ending -x: jarawhx [ja'raw];
    • in the clusters -g?h-, -?h-, -hh-, which all become [].
  • Otherwise it is silent or leaves only a vocalic trace:
    • Following and preceding a, e, o are lengthened if stressed: hedded ['?:dd?t], fehmet ['f?:m?t]. Other vowels are not affected.
    • In intervocalic position it is a glide, [j] after i, ie, and [w] after u: jibniha [j?b'n?:ja], in?obbuhom [?nb'bu:w?m].
    • The sequence -aho- becomes [?:]: rahom [r?:m]. The sequence -ehi- becomes [?j] or [?'ji:]: ftehim [ft?jm], [ft?'ji:m].
  • Phonotactically, word-initial h now generally behaves like a vowel, allowing contractions such as m'hemmx [m?:m?]. However, word-internal h still behaves like a (virtual) consonant. Compare for example qablu ['?abl?] with qabilha [?a'b?la], which latter is formed as though the l were followed by a consonant.

  • The abbreviation can be followed by a number between 00 and 59 to indicate the minutes of an hour. This can be optionally represented by another abbreviation: min.
