Anyone got any sorces about this digraph's origin (as a representation of /S/)? I think it attempts to be some sort of an average of /s/ + /x/ — also CF German <sch>! — but I could be mistaken. --Tropylium 19:08, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

Old English used sc instead. The h could be due to Norman influence. But I don't really know... FilipeS 18:01, 18 April 2007 (UTC)
P.S. Read Sch (trigraph). FilipeS 23:08, 18 April 2007 (UTC)
While the origin remains uncertain, I'd like to ask when it was removed from use in English publishing? (talk) 05:36, 4 February 2011 (UTC)
