    Now you're probably wondering how to write B. The answer is not Beta, because Beta is pronounced in Modern Greek as an English V. In order to represent the sound of a regular B, Greeks need two letters: Mu and Pi (μπ). Sometimes at the middle of a word μπ may sound like [mb], but this detail is not very strict for the pronunciation. Pages in your text book (pages in the edition) will introduce the alphabet and explain how the sound of each letter is pronounced. It will also explain the transliteration of each letter, that is, what English letter corresponds to each Greek letter.
