Thread: Quick question regarding anime...

  1. #1

    Default Quick question regarding anime...

    I pronounced it "ah-neem", my Daughter corrected me - "ah-nee-may"

    could someone please clarify? I'm guessing my Daughter is right, simply because I'm 99% wrong?

    "Anime" is short for "Animeshon" (Animation)

    I mean, technically it ends with more of a "meh" sound, because it would have to be "mei" to get pronounced "may". But since English speakers pronounce animation, ani-'may'-tion, I guess you can get away with making the word sound more English again...

    "Anime" is derived from a Japanese loanword from English. It's effectively a shortening of "animation", using Japanese "Romanji" orthography.

    In most languages, an "e" at the end of a word is pronounced as a separate phoneme: English and French are exceptions.

    I've heard a couple of pronunciations for it. I personally say "Anime" as "Ah-Knee-May", but the way it can be said can really differ. Especially on that beginning part "Ah". You can hit it high and low in accent. It's funny to hear people say it differently. The two most common ones are probably "Ahh" and "Aww".

    All in all, I think most people say it the way I do - "Ah-Knee-May."
    Anime. Japanese Animation. <3
