Hindi: Beti


Senior Member
Hello, everybody!
Could anyone help with the pronunciation of the Hindi word? This is the way a mother addresses her little daughter.
Do you pronounce the first vowel like it is in the English word Bet (I bet you will)? Is the last one ‘i’ like ‘y’ in the name Betty (diminutive from Elisabeth)?

    It literally means daughter, but when a parent says it to a child, it is in the sense of dear/darling.
