I’m trying to better understand aspiration. I know that French refers to an h
aspirante at the beginning of a word where the article is separated from the
noun. An example of this is “le hautbois” as opposed to “l’hautbois”.
Pilovese has a verb “behar”. The h is never pronounced in Pilovese so the
word is pronounced [be.ar]. There is a definite break between the e and the a
but not an audible sound. Is this an aspirated h as well?
