In the Latin alphabet, the letter H does not typically have accents or diacritical marks. However, in certain languages and transliteration systems, diacritics can be used with the letter H to modify its pronunciation or to represent specific sounds. Here are a few examples:
- Ĥ/ĥ: Esperanto is a constructed international auxiliary language that uses diacritics to indicate pronunciation. The circumflex accent (ˆ) placed on the letter H (Ĥ/ĥ) represents a voiceless uvular fricative sound.
- Ḥ/ḥ: In some transliteration systems, such as the Romanization of Arabic, the dot below (dot diacritic) is used to modify the letter H (Ḥ/ḥ) to represent a voiceless pharyngeal fricative sound.
- Ḫ/ḫ: The letter H with a breve (U-shaped diacritic) above it, known as “H with breve,” is used in the transliteration of certain Turkic languages. It represents a voiceless velar fricative sound.
It’s important to note that these diacritics are language-specific or used in transliteration systems. The usage of diacritical marks on the letter H may vary across languages and may not be present in the standard Latin alphabet.
Apart from these specific cases, the letter H is typically used without diacritical marks in most languages that utilize the Latin alphabet. It represents the sound /h/ as in “house” or “hello.”
