a huge a hug a habitat a horrible thing a hat a heffalump ;-) a harrow a hawk a hit a help what you will hear is a bit of confusion over Hotel. Also when people swallow their "h" they may try to compensate by adding the n, so "a hawk" becomes "an 'awk" , a hotel -. an 'otel but this is dialect or sloppy speech and would not be written as I just did. a hotel is ok, but an hotel is sometimes used, I'd stick with "a"

It's a huge. Generally, an is used only when the h is not pronounced. For example, an hour, an honor, an honest. More often, the h is pronounced and "a" is used. A hat, a hill, a happy, etc.

What do you mean by huge? Words that start with "h" that have a vowel sound in the beginning will use "an" before them. Otherwise, use "a." Examples: an hour, an honor, an honest mistake, etc. a hospital, a hamburger, a horrible mistake, etc. In general, "an" comes before words that start with vowel sounds, and "a" is used before words that start with consonant sounds. Hope this helps!
