different between herb vs sabbatia
From Middle English erbe, from Old French erbe (French herbe), from Latin herba. Initial h was restored to the spelling in the 15th century on the basis on Latin, but it remained mute until the 19th century and still is for many speakers.
- (UK, General Australian, General New Zealand) enPR: hû(r)b, IPA(key): /h??b/
- (US, Canada) enPR: (h)ûrb, IPA(key): /(h)?b/
- North American pronunciation of the word varies; some speakers include the h-sound and others omit it, with the h-less pronunciation being the more common. Individual speakers are usually consistent in their choice, but the choice does not appear to be correlated with any regional, socioeconomic, or educational distinctions.
- Outside of North America, the h-less pronunciation is restricted to speakers who have a general tendency to "drop the h" in all words.
