Never know which is correct, Dia Dhuit or Dia duit....I would think that "dhuit" would be correct as one would be addressing someone. And.. is this pronounced as "dwitch" or "gwitch'? ...and why?
Go raibh maith agat.

Most people say Dia dhuit but actually the correct one is Dia duit.

A Jeanette a chara,
I think it has to do with the process of orthographic standardisation of the Irish language. In simple terms, 'Dia duit' is grammatically correct but the traditional pronunciation is closer to "Dia dhuit'.
This, I believe, is another example of how the 'standardisation' of Irish to An Caighdeán Oifigiúil (The Official Standard) has revealed disparities betwen the habitual pronunciation of words and phrases and the new 'aceptable' spelling of said words and phrases.
Mise le meas,
Créag 'Fintan' Batty

Ár nAthair atá ar neamh,
Go naofar d'ainm
Go dtaga do ríocht
Go ndéantar do thoil ar an talamh
Mar a dhéantar ar neamh.
Ár n-arán laethúil tabhair dúinn inniu
Agus maith dúinn ár bhfiacha
Mar a mhaithimidne dár bhféichiúnaithe féin
Agus ná lig sinn i gcathú
ach saor sinn ó olc
Óir is leatsa an ríocht
agus an chumhacht
agus an ghlóir
Trí shaol na saol
Sé do bheatha, a Mhuire,
atá lán de ghrásta,
tá an Tiarna leat.
Is beannaithe thú idir mná
agus is beannaithe toradh do bhroinne, Íosa.
A Naomh-Mhuire, a Mháthair Dé,
guigh orainn na peacaigh, anois,
agus ar uair ár mbáis. Aimen.
