    I have literally never noticed anyone pronounce it differently so I have to assume I haven't come across these people (since I'd normally get ragey about stuff like that!).

    Does anyone have a video of someone pronouncing it "sickth"?

    After saying it a few time, could "sickth" pronouncers have a lisp? Then the missing "s" sound would be turned into a "th" anyway.

    DH and I are currently saying it and both cannot decide whether we are saying the 's' or not😳

    Sickth is incorrect and slightly weird (!). Definitely pronounced as the number 'six' with a 'th' sound on the end.

    Ah I loved waking up and reading this thread, picturing you all saying them both! Made my morning!

    I had two theories - one was about geography (country people born and bred say 'sickth'), and the other was that males are more likely to say 'sickth', but @A-Squared has stuffed both of those theories.

    Yes, it makes me twitchy too :-)

    Out of curiosity I googled the pronunciation of 6th last night.

    The sicksth pronunciation is Irish and American in origin
    The sicth pronunciation is English in origin

    http://english.stackexchange.com/que...sixth-as-sicth

    While my first instinct was sicksth, I've now said it so many times I've confused myself as to what I do say.

    I think that both DH and I were saying 'sicksth' but he said we weren't saying an 's' so we both just sat there repeating it and couldn't decide.
