How do *you* pronounce Mugen?
« on: May 13, 2009, 03:41:00 PM »
Okay, as some of you know, I'm still fairly new to all this. One of my questions that I've thought of but never really asked until now is, how exactly do people pronounce Mugen?

I say it as mu (as in greek letter) - GEN (like genesis)

mu-GEN.

Just wondering. No matter what I'll probably say it the same way to myself though as thats what I'm familiar with.  :-\

Yea i noticed this too
I pronounce it (Mew-Gen, Like u said as in genesis), but i noticed most people pronounce it (Mew-gin)
I always preferred (Mew-Gen) over (Mew-gin)

Ya I noticed that everyone pronouces it that way. but Its a japanese word meaning infinite and the "g" is meant to be pronounced like the name for Gen of street fighter.

Stop saying it like the rest of dumb america folks.

I've heard it pronounced Moo (like a cow) and Gen pronounced like the second syllable of again.
For those who are curious, yes I am gone and I don't intend to be back soon. I never formally said goodbye to you all, because that always becomes a forum stink. However, to my friends here, I wish you the best. Perhaps I'll be back one day but for now this is goodbye.

This is sad. You ignored me. I already told you the word mugen is japanese and it means infinite as in infinite possiblities. As for what each let in the acru. stand for I dont know.

Say it: Mu*ge*n

"mu" is like tsu in "tsunami"

"ge" is like ge in "get"

"n" is like if you said "in"

and if that doesnt satisfiy you I have the dictionary at home foos.

I thought it was pronounced "mew-shen" and yes it is Japanese:

Mugen is a word of Japanese origin, meaning dream, fantasy (夢幻), or infinite (無限).
It may also refer to:
Mugen Imawano, a character from the Capcom fighting game series Rival Schools
Mugen Motorsports (無限)
Mugen no juunin (無限の住人), Manga known in English as Blade of the Immortal
M.U.G.E.N, a fighting game engine
Mugen, a character in the Japanese Anime series Samurai Champloo
Mugen Seiki, a Japanese radio-controlled car manufacturer

and I think the acronym to me stand for :
M = My
U = Unicorn ( symbol for something else long and standing "erect" )
G = Gets
E = Enough
N = Nookie ( well if you don't understan this word then you will never get my joke)

 ;D

Thanks. That would explain everything. I wondered why mugen was so fem-like and girly...but I still love her.
