Is it "a" or "an" before "historical"?
+0
'A historical' would be the correct way to say it. Some people don't pronounce the 'h' at the beginning of historical and use 'an' instead of 'a' before it. But I think that's a bit old-fashioned.

A historical is used frequently.
Use "a" if the next word begins with a consonant, and "an" if the next word begins with a vowel. A tiger, an angel, a book, etc. A historical character.
Compare "history" to "hour." You would say "an hour" because you don't hear the "h" in that word. Try these: ____unusual movie; ____usual routine.

This is not completely correct.

The indefinite article a is used when the following word starts with a consonant sound

The indefinite article an is used when the following word starts with a wovel sound

Take for instance - university - which is called a university due to the start of the noun uni(juni)versity
