How Do You Pronounce It?

How do you pronounce it? Bay-Tuh, or Bet-ah?
I pronounce it Bay-tuh. I have a hard time when people call it Bet-ah. x3

I've said Bet uh all my life. It's the correct pronunciation. I have proof with dictionary.com

I say "Bay-tuh" even though I know it's not the correct pronunciation... it's hard to stop yourself from saying it though!

I say Bet-uh normally but every once in a while I say Bay-tuh because a lot of people don't know what I'm saying if I say bet-uh.
