It's the turn of the letter H.
A strange letter, for there are thousands of people in the world who cannot or just do not pronounce this letter. In my country one of our twelve provinces is populated with inhabitants who cannot pronounce the H. It's the province of Zeeland.
In France the H is also dropped for most of the time.
In the Holy Land the people of Galilee couldn't pronounce the H either, that's why Peter was recognized as one of the disciples of Jesus in the night that Jesus was interrogated by the Sanhedrin.
And then of course in London we know the cockneys who drop aitches all the time. Who doesn't know the famous sentence spoken by Eliza Doolittle, who tries to copy the pronunciation of Professor Higgens. He asks her to pronounce :"In Hertford,Hereford and Hampshire hurricanes hardly ever happen...
Eliza answers:"In' ertford, 'ereford and 'ampshire 'urricanes 'ardly ever 'appen...
Anyway we are going to show a great variety of the letter "H"! 'opefully you 'ave great 'istories for us.

In case you care about the technical aspects, Wil put up a picture, then I put up the Linky, then Wil put the rest of her text; somehow, they clashed. So I just moved the Linky to the bottom, and voila.ReplyDelete

Nice one Wil! Thankfully my British wife doesn't have a Cockney accent! Gorgeous flower too...purple is one of my favorite colors and I love My Fair Lady. The artwork in my post this week is actually "Purple Passion Flower" by our very own Barbara Rosenzweig.
