Etymology[edit]

The Hunmin Jeongeum Haerye, the treatise introducing the principles behind the Korean alphabet written by its inventor King Sejong in 1446, explains that this glyph was derived by adding a stroke to (Yale: q, Middle Korean letter denoting the glottal stop) to represent aspiration.

Symbol[edit]

(h)

  1. 히읗 (hieut), the fourteenth jamo (letter) of Hangul, the Korean alphabet.
    ㅎ (hieut) is pronounced as a glottal fricative ([h]), i.e. similar to the English h.
