comment Why is 一歩 pronouced 'ippo'?
@無色受想行識 Ah, so it is irrelevant. And that might help... Now I need to figure out why it isn't itsuho... But thank you.

comment Why is 一歩 pronouced 'ippo'?
@無色受想行識 Yes, I think I get it, it is p there, not h. I am a Finnish speaker and it is my understanding that what sounds awful to finnish would sound awful in japanese too. Like 'ihho' doesn't sound good at all to me...that is probably what is meant by not before h. That doesn't explain why choose the nanori there to begin with, but oh well...

"In addition, it does not appear before voiced consonants (g, z, d, or b), or before h, except in loanwords, or distorted speech, or dialects."

Not with いっ...like I said, I am utter beginner. I read that nanori is used almost always in names and such, so why use it here?
