Although [ɦ] has been described as a breathy-voiced counterpart of the following vowel because of its lack of place and manner of articulation in many languages, it may have glottal constriction in a number of languages (such as Finnish), making it a fricative.
Features of the "voiced glottal fricative":

|Dutch||haat||'hate'||See Dutch phonology|
|English||RP||behind||'behind'||See English phonology|
