- rdfs:comment "“There are two categories of words beginning with h in French; words beginning with mute h and words beginning with the so-called aspirated h usually referred to as h aspiré in the literature. Learners of French are usually told that the existence of the two classes is due to the origin of the words. Mute h words are believed to come from Latin while h aspiré words are traditionally attributed to Germanic languages where h was and still is aspirated. (…)
In most dialects of French, h aspire has no phonetic realization. It apparently lost its aspiration by the 16th century. This loss of aspiration resulted in the lack of phonetic distinction between mute h words and h aspiré words. They both begin with a vowel. However, a difference exists on the phonological level.” (Moisset 1996:223)
