wow it just sounds dumb to me just say it the way you want to say it not how other people say it
I'm really not saying there's a right way and a wrong way to say it, just that the "professionals" and dictionary sites tend to call it "Bet-tuh". It doesn't really matter if it sounds dumb or not, that's just how it is. I'm not telling anyone to say it one way or another, I'm just saying that, as I said before, "professionals" seem to say it that way. I myself say "Bay-tuh" most of the time, so why would I be trashing it?
