Recommended Posts

It's a silent H.

You mean "aitch"? :D

 

I've always said haitch looking down upon those who say different and if they get funny they get a punch on the nose. It's the only way, trust me. :blush:

I meant silent "haitch", yes. :blush: The girlfiend says 'aitch', I think I say 'haitch' but it was hard to catch myself unawares after I started thinking about it, it's hash* now anyway, terribly cultured! I think us Irish knackers say haitch, when I was growing up people said ah, for the letter A.

 

EDIT: Actually, that should be 'ash'.

Anyone who says "haitch" should be burnt imo.

I've noticed that Stephen Merchant always says "HAITCH" and it really really grates.

My mother for some reason says tortoys instead of tortus [tortoise], and appricot instead of apepricot [apricot].

 

Stupid Scottish. :D

Any breed of people who can somehow pronounce the word "now" as "nigh" with a bizarre question-like upward inflection at the end deserve some kind of grudging respect tbh.

I'm sensing that is more Norn Iron - Ian Paisley springs to mind.

Yes, geographically, as opposed to just politically. My mother would say that, but only when she's talking to someone from up North. Do the Scots say that as well?

Western Scotland, including Glasgow, yes, I think so. Actually Western Scotland and NorthernIreland are so closely linked it's amazing there's a sea in between.
