History of the letter H:
A letter originating from the Egyptian hieroglyphic for “fence”, “H” has undergone many transformations until it has become the “H” that it is now. Through each change, “H” not only changed its appearance but it has also changed the sound that it carries with it. When adapted to the Semitic languages, the “h” was given a harsh shorter sound, while quite oppositely when the romantic languages used the letter as almost a place holder and the letter is not even spoken. Some other languages have even another sound for the “h” which is a more airy and breathy sound. Depending on how the “h” is pronounced can change the meaning of a word completely.
