Then why did the computer display the unpronounced *H*?

We know Okrand intended the Morskan to speak with a dialect; I don't 
know if we know that he intended every aspect of the actor's 
pronunciation. Maybe the dropped *-'e'* was intentional, but the 
pronunciation of *tlh* and dropping of final *H* was not. Or some 
combination of that.
