I just saw a tutorial on YT, and the guy pronounce it G. M. I.C. (he pronounced each letter)
Some people call it G. mic
I saw many people which sounds struggling when they say g’mic in one word.
And myself, I call it gimmick because it’s very easy to pronounce when I speak and also it’s full of very-nice gimmicks ( define gimmick - Google Suche ) and G’MIC-Qt i call it gimmick-cute…
At the end of the day, Do you know how to pronounce G’MIC when you speak?
I’d say “pronounce it as you like”, all variants are fine
Personnally, I call it also gimmick because:
- I’m French and I believe it’s more natural to say like this in French (but not even sure).
- Gimmick is a term sometimes used in magick, and G’MIC is “GREYC’s Magic for Image Computing” (that’s why gmicky the mascot by David Revoy is a magician).
Thank you @David_Tschumperle , that’s what I was thinking and calling it “gimmick” comes also naturally for me (may be because I’m French as well)
Again thank you David, to clarify a decade of doubts
I didn’t clarify anything. I Just told about myself. Maybe we should create a poll to know the universal answer (well, we already know, it’s 42…).
EDIT: Here we go Poll : About the pronunciation of G'MIC
Sort of like the Australian greeting phrase
Addendum: Oh how I envy British headline writers.
When they published an article about a thesis, dealing with
Australian greeting phrases, they named it Fifty shades of g’day.

Ah, me. I’m working on how to pronounce ‘Tschumperlé’…
For me it has always been geemick and no poll in the world is going to change that!
Oh, that’s dead easy: it’s orthographic!
You might have done it
because whatever how we pronounce it, now we know we won’t be wrong
