Here is our top list of th words you can add to your writing. Read our guide.
Words with “th” are prevalent in English and we use them daily. To correctly use these words, you must know their types, position, and correct sounds. We have collected over 100 words with the “th” sound for you to familiarize yourself with and expand your vocabulary and communicate easily.
What are Th words?
These words are also known as consonant diagraphs, or words with two or more consonants combined to make one sound. The voiced /ð/ “th” means the sound is made with the vocal cords, such as “loathe” and “they.” Meanwhile, the unvoiced /θ/ “th” is where only air passes through the mouth, like “ethics,” “athletic,” and “authentic.”
The table below contains “th” in the words’ beginning, middle, and ending.
Words With Th in the Initial Position
Below is a list of common words starting with “th.” If vowels follow the consonants, it’s a type of voiced “th” word. On the other hand, the voiceless “th” is usually succeeded by another consonant.
