So I was taking a stroll yesterday. I was coming up to 12th Street, and I looked up at the street signs. I found myself stopping to stare at 12th Street for a minute or two. Why? Because have you ever really looked at the word twelfth before? It’s a weird word!
How are you supposed to pronounce twelfth? Do you pronounce the f or do you pronounce the th? After repeating the word way too many times during the course of me writing this post, I have discovered that I say twelTH…because forget the f! Who needs it? Not me.
I did attempt to pronounce all the sounds in twelfth, but it was awkward and difficult and no thank you. ~th all the way.
But I want to hear from you! Do you say twelth, twelf, or are you an overachiever and say twelFTH? Did I make you self conscious about it? I am now. Anyways let’s end this. Good days and happy things!
