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