I literally don't understand sickth. It's six with a th on the end. Do sickth sayers leave out random letters in "fourth" or "seventh" or "tenth"? Are there people walking around saying "fouth" and "seveth" and "teth"?
Side note, people who say "fith" instead of "fiFth" make me twitch as well.
(This post took fecking ages to write because autocorrect kept trying to fix things..... I feel you, Autocorrect, I feel you)
ETA for actual genuine spelling errors 😒

Sixksth for me! Hubby used to like this crappy metal band called Sikth so saying 6th wrong just sounds like that band name lol.

@Moxy your rage is hilarious. I feel you. I feel you
@ssecretsquirrel - thanks! You know I never would have thought of actually seeing which way was correct, I just assumed my way was! That's interesting too, I'm English and know lots of English people, all of whom say 'sicks-th'...

Well 6 is six/sicks, so 6th is sixth/sicks-th
ETA: So do people who say it as sickth, pronounce 6 as sick?

And @harvs I'm so glad I've been the anomaly to disprove your theory! I usually hate bad pronunciation myself .
My biggest pet hate - frofy - when men talk about beer / a frothy.
I feel a spinoff coming up!

I also dislike arks instead of ask, asterix instead of asterisk and adding a k onto the end of words ending in "ing" (somethink, everythink etc).
ETA: and don't get me started on the pronunciations of maroon (the colour) and asphalt. When I hear "marone" and "ashfelt" I twitch.
