How Do You Say...

Betta! I am just wondering how you say betta. My dictionary doesn't have it so I'm asking here.

how do i say betta? "tobacco with fins" since they're so addictive

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

Betta is pronounced BEH-TAH is correct. BAY-TAH is the greek letter, spelled beta.
