Spelling East Cree (Southern) – Syllablic Finals
The use of the ᐦ (h) ᔮᐦᔮᐙᑭᓐ
The ᐦ (h) symbol is a difficult one to use correctly. There are a few places where it is used predictably, mostly in grammatical endings, but otherwise, you have to train yourself to hear it when someone pronounces a word.
The ᐦ (h) symbol does not occur at the beginning of a word, except in names.
Note that for certain words, the ᐦ (h) symbol may be used more often in the Inland dialect than in the Coastal dialect.
