Native speakers? How do you / would you pronounce:

MEME

The strange thing is, due to the world today, many words are in constant use but never spoken out loud.. This might well be one of them.

For me it's always been 'meem' (team, as in video below) -- though I hear some say 'me me' or the same with a short 'e' (mimi)

"Mēm" (with a long e) is how I have pronounced "meme."
But, I don't think I have said the word in over 30 years, and then only in a biological context.

"meme" was selected to sound like "gene", so it's a one-syllable word that rhymes with "teem", which is how I heard it on the U-tube clip. I've never heard any other pronunciation. I didn't know there was another pronunciation in use.

Quite extensively, due to the new usage of the word - originally in internet sub-culture now becoming mainstream.

Float over the items, and you'll see the meme's name, the name of the series of images in this case.

My best guess personal definition of an 'internet' meme would be 'A series of poignant / humorous (usual visual) media works, shared widely and based around a culturally relevant / understood theme.'

Wikipedia: "An Internet meme is an idea that is propagated through the World Wide Web. The idea may take the form of a hyperlink, video, picture, website, hashtag, or just a word or phrase, such as intentionally misspelling the word "more" as "moar" or "the" as "teh". The meme may spread from person to person via social networks, blogs, direct email, news sources, or other web-based services"
