Here we go, listen to the first audio clip.

http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/plakat

It looks like Pla-kot.

In most SEA countries (I think) "A" is pronounced .... as in aha!

So plakat - pla (not as in play) and kat as in kart (without the "R")....
something like that......???

Indjo's pronunciation is pretty much what the Wiki says.

*Puts on speech therapist hat*

the correct pronunciation should be pl-A(sounds like cod)- kA(sounds like cod)-T

In the end it doesn't really matter unless you are planning to really get into bettas and speak at aquarium society meetings or go to betta breeder meetings or IBC conventions/shows.
