    2 or 3 H Words together

    Any advise appreciated

    How do I pronounce 2 or 3 H words together e.g. Do I need to prounce all the H's, as I have difficulty prouncing H words? What is the best way also to prounce H words?

    Examples:

    He Had
    Had He Held
    Her High Heels

    Thankyou!

    1. You could speak very slowly and carefully.
    2. Change the wording if it is your choice - 'Her shoes with the spike heels.'

    I agree that changing the wording is a possible option in some cases:
    He had -> He'd (if the 'had' is an auxiliary)
    Had he had -> If he'd been in possession of

    But I've never met *'spike shoes'. You'd need to paraphrase in some other way - 'those heels of hers - so high'
