you do realise it's not incorrect to use "a historian" if you pronounce the h, like pretty much everyone in my country does? it sounds weird if you force an on a consonant and also if you force a on a vowel. it depends how you pronounce the word.

see also: sauce. turns out americans tend not to understand where "give me the sauce" comes from. it comes from the fact that many people pronounce "sauce" as "source". there's no difference between the two. seeing memes about how sauce and horse can't rhyme makes no sense to me or anyone around me. nobody here says "soss", bc then you can't say "what's the sauce?"
