Ha or He (Shha in Unicode) (Һ һ; italics: Һ һ) is a letter of the Cyrillic script. Its form is derived from the Latin letter H (H h h), but the capital forms are more similar to a rotated Cyrillic letter Che (Ч ч) or a stroke-less Tshe (Ћ ћ) because the Cyrillic letter En (Н н) already has the same form as the Latin letter H.
Most of the languages using the letter call it ha - the name shha was created when the letter was encoded in Unicode.
Shha often represents the voiceless glottal fricative /h/, like the pronunciation of ⟨h⟩ in "hat"; and is used in the alphabets of the following languages:
|Azerbaijani||1939–1991, now uses a Latin alphabet (Still used by Dagestan)||/h/,/ħ/|
|Kazakh||Only used in Arabic, Persian loanwords and some exceptions||/h/|
|Kildin Sami||Also represented by the modifier letter apostrophe (ʼ)||/◌ʰ/|
It is very similar to the letter H. (H, h)
This letter is used in the Tatar language.
