Adding a silent H into words in order to make them fannish is now a full-blown tradition. It is no longer aspirated. Note also that the same process will sometimes turn "F" into "Ph" — e.g., Phoxphyre.

|With the spread of the expression "ghod", and perhaps as a carryover from the trend noted under "G", addition of an H after the initial letter of a word came to mean, or at least imply, "pertaining to fandom", as in Lhiterature and Bheer. When spoken, such aspirates are voiced: Luh-HIT-er-a-ture, Buh-HEER.
An orphan sound, having no companion sound like nearly every other consonant has. Let's shed a tear and pass on to the definitions.
