French H, how is it pronounced?

It is important to know what type of Hs we are dealing with. The nature of the H will determine the pronunciation. With an aspirated H, there is no liaison and the definite article is le, la. With a silent – or mute – H, the liaison is required and the definite article is l’. Following is a short list of common French words starting with Hs.
