Hmm... that is interesting. I have always pronounced it Bay-tuh , so it sounds weird to me to say Beh-tuh

Yep,I probably won't even try to change, because I will just forget to say it the right way anyway!

If you think that's weird, Plakat isn't supposed to be Pla-ket, it's Pluh-cot. Lol, but they're all Thailand words anyway.
I typically say Bay-tah when talking with newbies but will say Be-tuh as it should be, when talking to my fish friends and the club.

Wilds: Wajok, Rutilans, Siamentorialis, Hendra
Leopards: Luna, Astrael, Dorian, Cullen, Gallifrey
Gargoyle: Cloudjumper

I've always pronounced it as Beh-tuh. I have heard some people pronounce it as Bay-tah.

Wow, I didn't know that about Plakat... It's always good to learn something new!

I think I have found the proper reference:

Alppha
Betta
Ggamma
Dellta
Epsillon ... Ommegga

However, it's still all Geek to me!
