    Feel her

    Can I drop the "h" sound in this sentence: she couldn't feel her feet touching the floor. Thank you!

    Re: Feel her

    Why would you want to use sub-standard English?

    Like most of these omissions involving rapid speech, you don't do it deliberately; it happens. It would sound wrong if you did it when speaking slowly.

    I would say: ""her" and "er" sound the same
    I'm not sure if your sentence is grammatical.

    Re: Feel her

    You should concentrate on reading and speaking correct, grammatical and carefully pronounced English before considering using non-standard English.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
