But that doesn't make sense, since the reason you don't pronounce it in hours is due to the two vowels after it making it awkward to pronounce the h, whereas herbs is easy to pronounce with the h...

Herbs should be pronounce with a h

However, in a reference to Family Guy
Whip is 'wip'
Not 'hoowip' or however it'd be typed...

Aww, I thought this was a topic about Mr. Data from Star Trek: TNG
He's a freak of nature, but we love him so.

Spelling/pronunciation reform happened in the UK after America was discovered.

We decided herb and hospital (and some others) should have the /h/ pronounced.

American English had already been butchered and standardised so they ignored us and kept ignoring the /h/ in herb.


It's not because of any of the letters around it
