    pronunciation of H

    Does any british man pronounce "H" as "heɪtʃ" instead of "eɪtʃ"? Someone who stayed in Malaysia says so.

    Re: pronunciation of H

    Some native speakers do. It is generally considered sub-standard.

    'british man' should be 'British person'', unless you think this is a gender-specific pronunciation.

    Re: pronunciation of H

    This is interesting.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H
    It says that 60% of Australians say 'haitch'. I don't. I'm one of the 40% that says it correctly.

    Yes, some do pronounce it like that.

    Not a teacher.
