How do you pronounce the 'lim' syllable in limerence. It's a word I have only ever read, never heard.

So is it 'lim' as in limerick or 'lime' as in limestone?
So far I've got one vote for 'lim' as in limerick, and some references to coloured pills that might be about a film from the 90s.

I've always assumed lim as in bin, but like many people here I suspect, the word has never passed my lips and neither have I ever heard anyone else speak it. It wasn't until I saw your post that it even crossed my mind to wonder :-o !

Lim as in limerick. If you would like to hear the word spoken there are YouTube videos on the subject.

You've never said it out loud? Like never? Not even read it to yourself, just like that. Or am i the only one who does that :-?

It's come up before that it seems the world is divided into those who read.....and just "read"....versus those who read...and have a full-blown narrator inside of their head that sounds like Alistair Cooke one minute and Hellen Mirren the next reciting the words on the page....

(....but the latter wouldn't be *me*!... :-\ [-( %-( ~x( ...)

Truthfully, I can't recall NOT reading this way....right now as I'm typing these words, the inner narrator is Alan Rickman,....but that could just be due to having played a short video clip for SO from "Quigley Down Under".....

Gotta love (or not) the way the mind works.......and plays.....after too many years spent frollicking in the Hollywood Holodeck.... B-)

Interesting... I have a narrator voice in my head too. In fact ive given 'voices' to everyone on this forum and i read it in their voice! And most other things.
Its strange though. English isn't my native language, so all the voices are mostly derived from American pop culture.
