I learned pluralization, was " 's is for if it is owned by, or using "is" as a part of the word." so betta's bowl belongs to the betta, my betta's flaring has the is... I might accidentally do that here and there xD usually catch myself...

I say Bay-Ta... it's just how it's always been said around here for years until forums came along. I know it's Bet-Tah but meh... I'd be corrected left and rite if I said it that way in person around here. The pet store already thinks I'm a know it all.

But yet... here? We have our own way of saying everything lol

i thnk it is pronouced bay-tuh. i don't know if it is proper or not but that is what i'm used to hearing. it really just depends on your opinion because petstores like petsmrt tell me to pronounce it like bay-tuh while my friend keeps saying be-tuh LOL.

haha I'm a bay-tuh person too. Bet-tuh sounds funny to me. Sounds like a gangster saying 'better' xD

I just say "bay-ta" because whenever I say "bet-tuh," people never understand what I'm talking about or they think I'm mispronouncing it. Eh, what can you do?

When something is so set, like the mispronounciation of a word, it's very hard to revert it back to the original. ex. Paris: it's Pari! the S is silent. Or, Mexico. In spanish, it's Mehiko. the x, is not pronounced as "xs" but "h" ;) (language freak here, )

Ha, I know exactly what you're talking about. Whenever I'm in French class and people mispronounce Paris, it just irritates me.

Pluralization:
One Betta...two Betta...three Betta...Right?
(One fish... two fish)

Capitalization:
Betta Splendens
Betta needs caps (the word, not the fish)

On here, you can pronounce it anyway you choose.
