The Unpronounced "ha" in Persian: it Uses and Designations (in Arabic)

Auther : Mohammad Siddiq Al-Awadi

This paper shows the origin of the unpronounced ‘ha’ in the orthography of modern Persian, after the Persians had adopted the Arabic alphabet for writing their language instead of the Sassanian Phalavi script (of middle Persian), and when they borrowed the Arabic ‘ha’ of pause.

The paper also deals with the habit of writing the unpronounced ‘ha’ for showing the correct pronounciation of certain word that had lost one or more letters at the end in the conversational language.

Further, the paper shows the different designations given to this ‘ha’ in accordance with its many positions, and its functions in morphology, grammar and prosody. It also deals with the short vowels before this unpronounced ‘ha’ and the differences and similarities in Persian and Afghani pronunciation of sounds occurring before this ‘ha’. It gives the opinions of certain modern Persian scholars as regards their giving preponderance to this or that short vowel although Persians generally use a short ‘I’ here. It gives evidence to the development of the short vowels used before it at the early stages of Islamic Persian.
