i found the {th}silent in isthmus ,asthma .clothes can i get some more words ?

I’m afraid asthma, isthmus, and clothes are all the words I’m aware of with silent <th> – except, of course, for inflected and derived forms like asthmatic, asthmatically, asthmaticus, asthmatoid, asthmogenic, isthmi, isthmic, isthmial, isthmian, isthmuses, bedclothes, plainclothes, underclothes. And due to the pressure of spelling pronunciations, some of these words have pronunciations in which the <th> is not silent.
