Hello

Please don't laugh at me, but I was wondering how to pronounce "meta"?

I have always pronounced it to rhyme with "better".

Yet I have always pronounced "beta" to rhyme with "meter".

So is "meta" actually "meter"?

Thanks

I've never heard anyone say "meetuhphysics" so I'll stick with the way I've always thought.

Thanks very much.

to find out that what you thought was a correct pronounciation is actually the one that most people use.

For years I worked with someone who pronounced Linux as 'Line ux' as opposed to 'Linnux', and he wouldn't hear of it any other way. I got so used to his way of saying it that I found myself doing the same thing once, when I was giving a talk on computing as a career to some sixth - year students. I didn't realise I had done it, and I wondered why some members of my audience were smiling.
