Only pronouncing "btr" sounds more like better than butter. The letter b is usually pronounced "be" not "bu".

That depends on what type you mean. If you spell it out like b-t-r, it becomes "be". If you pronounce it "btr", it becomes "bu".

No, it becomes BetterFS or BitterFS (bee-tee-are-eff-ess). I dont know how the dutch pronounces B but in English there are no circumstances where the letter B is pronounced "bu".

The letter "b" is pronounced as "bee" so BitterFS should be the most appropriate pronounciation...

The letter "b" doesn't make the "bee" sound. Ask any four year old, It makes the "buh" sound. Or watch some sesame street.


"buh" ..... "Tah" ..... "er"
"buh" ... "Tah" ... "er"
"buh" .. "Tah" .. "er"
"buh" . "Tah" . "er"
"buh""Tah""er"
"buhTaher"
"butter"
Butter!!!

no, thom is right, why are you arguing this, did you think everyone said butterfs because of a signal from god instead?
