It's hard to pronounce 'fourths.' How do you pronounce 'fourths' in normal speech?

for + ths

In normal speech, "fourths" is pronounced as "fourths" (like the number 4 followed by "ths"). To pronounce it correctly, you would say "fourths" with emphasis on the "f" sound, followed by the "o" sound, the "r" sound, and then "ths" which rhymes with words like "births" or "worths." Remember to stress the "th" sound at the end, making it slightly longer than a simple "s" sound.
