Okay, I was wrong before. I say bay-duh. I've tried saying "bet-ta" but I can't stick with it for long and pet store employees have no idea what I'm talking about.

I say "Awright" instead of "Alright"... :P

When I say it the right way it sounds a bit odd because I'm used to saying it baytuh and spelling it betta. I don't know why people say that way they just do. My friend says betta and it sounds weird to me. I'm not sure people will understand the right way some may thou.

Well i remember when i replied to a thread exactly like this.

It wasnt pretty that was when i was a bit younger and a little more ignorant and it turned into an argument. Also there is no correct pronunciation IMO! so say it how you like! No one cares and/ or is going to go to your house and threaten you to say it how they want you to or the correct way lol!!

Go to this link, http://www.google.com/search?source=...AAAqgQFT9AnMFw because when i typed in "BETA FISH" IT says did you mean "Betta fish"

The results are in!

We usually found people from Florida said HAWT or HAT instead of HOT

I say "Bet uh" It's hard to say it a different way when you have always heard it another way....Kinda like "Catsup" and "Ketchup" and when I was a kid I said "Samwhich" instead of "Sandwich". My sister still says samwhich and my friend Gary is 41 and says Sammich LOL. To each his own I guess :)
