Word used all the time by ignorant people in southern ca, and maybe beyond. Incorrect pronunciation of the simple word 'height.' Immediately makes you look about 30 IQ points dumber as soon as you say it.

archaic, awkward sounding, yet still correct from of the word "height." Formed by adding the "-th" suffix onto the word "high." Formerly spelled "highth."
