Exactly!

Well, here it's a mix. Some people say beh-tuh, like me, and some say bay-tah. I still find bay-tah weird, though.

Well, not necessarily. Many words are spelled differently, but have the same pronunciation.

I know it's *supposed* to be pronounced "bettuh" I probably could never shake the habit of "bayduh" because that's how EVERYONE in Alabama says it and NO ONE would know what I was talking about if I said I have 4 bettuh fish. They would think I was crazy. And it sounds a little crazy in my head. So, I know it's not right but it'll be ok.
