* He doesn't like baths.

How do you pronounce 'baths'?
Do we have to omit the th sound in normal speech?

  • English expression -

    Most careful speakers pronounce the th in "baths," although it is common to omit this sound.

  • English expression -

    I haven't heard anyone not include the "th" in this word ... except for little children who still don't always have their sounds straightened out! Some young children say "baffs," but careful speakers don't, as Ms. Sue has said.
