Hey guys, hope you all are doing fine.

I have a little, little question. When you come across the word "BFME" in a web page or forum, how do you read it (out loud or in your mind), like "bee eff emm ee"??

Or just "Battle for Middle Earth"?

It's kind of silly, I know, but it kind of bugs me :crazed:

I think "bee eff emm ee" sounds really, really wierd! More weird than my question! :crazed:

Well, like any words, I don't read them as actual sounds when just reading in my mind. So I just get the concept of BFME but I don't actually associate any sound with it.

This. However, imagine a situation when you're talking about BFME to another person in live. In that case, I'd pronounce it "Bii-ef-em-ii".
