Continues Arabic ه (h). In pre-modern Maltese, h still produces the sound [h] as recorded by Agius de Soldanis (1750) and Mikel Anton Vassalli (1796). The early contemporary variant was first found in the dialect of lsien tal-bliet (“tongues of the cities”, referring to the cities around the Grand Harbour according to Vassalli) which eventually superceded the increasingly archaic [h] sound in the neighborhing areas.

  • (phoneme) IPA(key): /-/, /ː/, /j/, /w/, /ħ/
  • (phoneme) IPA(key): /h/, /ħ/ (archaic)

h (upper case H)

  1. The tenth letter of the Maltese alphabet, written in the Latin script.
  • In contemporary Maltese, h remains a true consonant [ħ] in the following cases:
    • in word-final position or when being the last radical of a verb: ikrah [ˈɪkraħ], jixbhu [ˈjɪʃpħʊ];
    • before the negative ending -x: jarawhx [jaˈrawħʃ];
    • in the clusters -għh-, -ħh-, -hh-, which all become [ħħ].
  • Otherwise it is silent or leaves only a vocalic trace:
    • Following and preceding a, e, o are lengthened if stressed: hedded [ˈɛːddɛt], fehmet [ˈfɛːmɛt]. Other vowels are not affected.
    • In intervocalic position it is a glide, [j] after i, ie, and [w] after u: jibniha [jɪbˈnɪːja], inħobbuhom [ɪnħɔbˈbuːwɔm].
    • The sequence -aho- becomes [ɔː]: rahom [rɔːm]. The sequence -ehi- becomes [ɛj] or [ɛˈjiː]: ftehim [ftɛjm], [ftɛˈjiːm].
  • On the other hand in pre-modern Maltese dialects that preserved the guttaral sounds, h remained as a true consonant with the aspirated and soft sound of [h] in all positions except:
    • If word final h is an affixed pronoun: ħalluh [χal.lʊːħ], ħallih [χal.lɪːħ], fih [fɪːħ].
  • Phonotactically, word-initial h now generally behaves like a vowel, allowing contractions such as m’hemmx [mɛːmʃ]. However, word-internal h still behaves like a (virtual) consonant. Compare for example qablu [ˈʔablʊ] with qabilha [ʔaˈbɪla], which latter is formed as though the l were followed by a consonant.

Preposition h is a form of preposition k that appears before words that start with /k/ or /ɡ/ while other form is used for all other words. In "correct" pronunciation, the preposition does not form its own syllable, but binds to the first syllable of the next word and has therefore two pronunciations: [x] if word starts with [k] and [ɣ] if word starts with [ɡ]. In colloquial speech, this form (or at least its pronunciation) are also used with words starting with other letters.
