Common throughout England and South Wales; rare in
Ireland and Scotland and overseas.
English accents which do NOT have H-Dropping include RP, Estuary English (although Cockney has H-Dropping), and some dialects in the NE of England and in East Anglia
This variable refers to loss of /h/ in stressed syllables:
Herbert is a happy horse becomes "Erbert is an appy orse"
But remember that ALL accents of English are likely to drop /h/ in unstressed function words: he his him her who and the unstressed auxiliary forms of have has had.
