An Academic Look at IHT

IHT is an initialism abbreviation. Technically, this means it is pronounced using its individual letters (i.e., Eye Aitch Tee), but as this is harder to say than "I Hate This," it is not often uttered using its letters. In other words, the abbreviation IHT is used for efficiency in writing and not efficiency in speech.

IHT is typically used as a standalone declarative sentence (i.e., a statement). In other words, it is not normally used as another part of speech within a wider sentence.
