Pronunciation[edit]

Which are the original and modern Greek pronunciations of "beta"? I think this information could be useful ;) Sabbut 15:13, 9 May 2004 (UTC)

The modern Greek pronunciation is (IPA or SAMPA)/vi.ta/,<vee.ta>.And Koine pronunciation is ... maybe /be:ta/.

Disambig moved around[edit]

I've attempted to cleanup the Beta, Beta (letter) pages - by moving the Beta page to the Beta (disambiguation) page - and moving some of the uses of pure β to the Beta (letter) article (i.e. the symbol β means X). I think this is clearer, though I'm sure there could be some improvements. Please make any changes you see fit. Megapixie 02:56, 3 November 2005 (UTC)

Now Alpha and Gamma follows the "standard" of Beta. I think it's better now... I've reverted your first edit only catch your attention to those other letters... Good work Megapixie. Regards Loudenvier 03:42, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

The same as B?[edit]

I'm confused...

Is the upper case of this letter not the same as the Latin letter B?... 84.138.242.234 (talk) 20:03, 31 January 2010 (UTC)

Yes. If there are any differences, they are insignificant in written form. Note that Beta is the Greek V though, not B. Grk1011/Stephen (talk) 20:06, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
No. Its encoded differently, even though it often displays the same character. — LlywelynII 04:12, 11 March 2015 (UTC)

An archaic form of Beta[edit]

"BY" for BYZANTION, but "Beta" is different! Böri (talk) 11:14, 11 November 2010 (UTC)

See answer at Talk:Greek alphabet. Yes, we could add this variant in this article, along with a couple others. There were lots of weird beta variants in archaic local Greek scripts. Fut.Perf. 11:32, 11 November 2010 (UTC)

Thermodynamic beta[edit]

Thermodynamic beta should be added to this article 72.53.96.54 (talk) 17:17, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

Another medieval form[edit]

Hello! I'm a map!

This map (over there→) says the name of Great Britain is Albiōnos, but its glyph for beta is something like ɤ. Byzantine Greek variant? or misspelling with a strange form of gamma? or scribal error? — LlywelynII 04:12, 11 March 2015 (UTC)

Oh, ok. It's ȣ and Alouion was just a variant spelling. — LlywelynII 05:18, 11 March 2015 (UTC)

Would it be appropriate to add that beta is used to describe a type of male in social hierarchy?[edit]

Like alpha/beta/delta/omega males? Socialistguy (talk) 15:22, 24 March 2016 (UTC)
