I keep on mishearing thus, too. It's really frustrating !

I agree. Have had it twice. Both times certain it was i and not thu.

I think seacaid is the word I have found hardest to pronounce so far!

It is very hard for a non native. This word is probably medium difficulty. There are some real tongue twisters in the language though, but don't worry too much. I've been speaking Gaelic most my life and still find a couple words hard to say.

couldn't hear the 'thu'

Tha I would relate to “she” and sound like ha ee Tha thu would relate to “you” and, if sounded slowly would sound like ha oo

but Ciamar a tha thu ( how are you) said at normal speed sounds like Kimah-a-how
