Pronunciation of dechep?

How is dechép "seventeen" pronounced? Like dec-ép, like de-cép, or maybe with a glottal stop dec-?ép? That is, does the presence of the letter h change the pronunciation of dechép compared to a hypothetical *decép?


Mark responds:

Verdurian h is purely orthographic. So dechép is pronounced de-cép.

(In case it's unclear to anyone, this word is composed of dec + hep; it doesn't have a ch sound. I really don't like digraphs...)
