    Hon vs. Hun

    I have a very perplexing question. When you shorten "honey", do you say hun or hon? Because hun sounds right when you say it by itself, but isn't spelled the same. Hon is spelled right, but just doesn't sound right without the ney. What do you think is right? Please justify it. Does anyone know what it is supposed to be so I can stop alternating?

    hmm i dunno, all i know is that i call it Hun.. Since in swedish Hon = Her. And that just doesn't suit the way i talk or something.. Just feels weird.. O.o Although i just call a few chosen ones hun

    I have always said hun. Hon just looks weird, and forces you to pronounce it with an "aw" sound.

    My only justification would be taking the name "Richard", which can be shortened into "Dick". Quite a large change, but relatively the same thing.

    I think Hun, just because there is a "u" in the word.

    I said hun forever, and then someone got on my case about it one day. I was like "heh...alright!" And since then I've been alternating. I'm switching back now.

    I shorten the word Honey with my fist.









    I kid, I kid. I've only ever heard the word hun. Although I am offended by that word. So I don't really care. I do not call people honey.
