In videos I've heard people say "meem" although in my mind I say "meh-may" when I read it.
I've been thinking about this too, lately.


Guess what?

Meem, I think.

This further proves why I hate the ambiguity of English.

Spanish ftw.

Mem, or mehm.
Like men, except with an m. That has some better flow to it.

But everybody else calls it meem, like beam with an m.

Fuck you all though, my pronunciation is cooler.

The whole thing is supposed to be the cultural equivalent of 'genes'.

Like, bits of cultural units (i.e. ideas, values, behaviours etc.) that are passed on from person to person. A self-replicating piece of cultural information.

As far as I know, it is a combination of the word 'mimic' and the word 'gene'.

Also, the word 'memetics' exists, just like 'genetics'.

All of this adds up to the pronunciation of the word 'meme' as 'meem'. It's all very simple.
