If the H is silent, how do you say hay ? Is it like A or I? or do you say the h sound?

The "h" is silent. It's pronounced like you're saying the letter "i" in English.

It's supossed that /h/ is silent but people use to give them certain sound in certain words:

  • hiede > jiede
  • hediondo > jediondo
  • huarache > guarache
  • huevo > güevo

This usually happens in Mexico.
