Ok. I guess when i posted this it seemed like a pretty simple letter being pronounced. Im sorry I suggested the wrong pronunciation. Didnt expect so many arguments against my grammar. Am not going to argue over a letter, Will keep quiet next time.
This thread is all about debating the pronunciation and arguing over the letter, and if you look back there have been lots of people who have felt the same way as you.
No one is replying with any ill intention. It's all meant nicely - promise.
I pronounce it Aitch, I was taught to pronounce H as Aitch at school and On occassion I find myself pronouncing the Australian version. In my opinion I don't believe there's a right or wrong way, it's whatever way you were taught .
My little one's father says heytch but what is worse, is he cannot hear the difference when I say aitch or heytch to try to explain. They both sound the same to him.
I went to a very proper school and was corrected numerous times that the proper pronunciation was "aitch."
Occasionally when I am spelling a word I do forget and say " haitch" though. :P
DS1 said "haitch" again last night! Argh, his teachers!
I pounced on him and said "Do you know what you find when you look up "haitch" in the Oxford Dictionary? Nothing! Because it's not a word!"
(I am also apparently the only person in my children's life who is able to teach them when to say "my friend and I" and when to say "my friend and me". I am really sad that their teachers simply don't know this stuff.)

I was always taught that it is "my friend and I", never "my friend and me". Then I had a teacher later in highschool who said it had changed.
What's correct lambjam? When can you say "my friend and me"?
Hope this makes sense
