FreeThinker Posted November 16, 2013 Report Share Posted November 16, 2013 When checking Writers Digest about the "snuck v sneaked" conundrum, I noticed a link regarding the rule of "a" before consonants and "an" before vowels. WD says the rule refers to pronunciation. Since the "h" in "hour" is silent, one would still write "an hour." Similarly, I would write "a history." However, I feel uncomfortable saying "A historical," even though the "h" is not silent. I feel more comfortable saying "an historical..." Am I wrong? (I frequently am.) Thoughts?
