How Do You Spell NH?

The letters "nh" may seem unusual in the English language, but they do appear in words like "inhale," "honor," and "inhuman." The reason for this unusual combination is due to the phonetic transcription of the sound "n" and "h" when they occur together. In the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA), this sound is represented as /n̥/ or /x̩/, meaning that the vocal cords are partially or completely closed when pronouncing the "n" sound. This combination of sounds creates the unique spelling of "nh" in certain English words.
