I call them bet-ta's normally but when I'm in my LPS I refer to them as bay-tas otherwise most of the kiddies/employees in there wouldn't know what the hell I was talking about. Sad, eh? (Yes, I'm Canadian too.)

I said bet-ta to one employee and she just kind of stared at me until I said 'Uhm... bay-ta?'. Then she acted like I was the idiot not pronouncing it correctly, while she emphasized the incorrect pronunciation further into our enthralling conversation. LOL

Click on either of those and you can hear the correct pronunciation.

Bay-tuh is Beta not Betta. Also it is not Bed-duh or Bed-uh.

I do say Bay-tuh, but I've been saying that all of my life, and continue to say it that way.

beta (bay-tuh) is a greek letter. It annoys e when my grandparents call and say, "How are your bay-tuh fish?" I don't have the heart to correct them. :)
