PH Words

What are PH Words?

Aspiration does not possess a phonemic sound in English. In conclusion, the letter h in ‘ph’ indicates that it is from a different language. In literature, this process is referred to as “Loan word phonology” (a second language learner can learn more about English phonology only by observing how words are anglicized/pronounced). It arises whenever terms from other languages are borrowed.

Ph terms are often derived from Greek or Latin words. They are typically pronounced as /f/unless dissimilated in particular circumstances.

Conclusion

Therefore, double consonant phi from Greek has been transliterated into English as the letter Ph. The ancient Greeks interpreted the sound of the letter f as an aspirated p. In classical times, their alphabet did not have a letter for the letter f.

To condense a lengthy explanation into a sound bite, it should be noted that the phi spelling is preserved in all English nouns deriving from Greek.
