How do you pronounce Betelgeuse?
Thank you. I like “bay tel geese.” That will keep me from getting stuck on the word when I’m reading interesting context. Now if only I could teach my iPhone dictation the correct spelling. Some of the dictation’s products are hilarious. And cool your dad watching Betelgeuse with a sextant!Bate Tull geese or beetle juice
Either way is proper .
That's what my dad told me when he first introduced me to the star. He used to "shoot" it with a sextant when he was in the Navy.
Thank you Sarajo. I love Great Britain. I have a lot of Britain in my American genes.as a resident of the UK i pronounce it beetlejoose. If american i guess it depends on what state in the US you are from because of the difference in american accent. for exmple my american friend is from kentucky & her accent is very drawly -drawn out therefore pronouncing it Bate Tull geese -thats the way she would pronounce it -.its the sort of accent that british people would call a cowboy accent (yeeeehaaaaahhh!!) in stereotype-thats what i mean by drawl american accent NOT me taking the mickey out of the nicest americans on this site
