    Default How do YOU pronounce SELEM?

    Evil Adam and I can't come to an agreement on how to pronounce "SELEM", so I thought I'd put it to all of you to decide.

    Definitely post what you think beyond your vote -especially if it wasn't one of the choices in this poll.

    This poll has no bearing on the "real" way to pronounce "SELEM".

    That's what I was trying to represent with option 3 on the poll.

    I agree with sell 'em.

    Why would you pronounce the first "e" as an "a"?
    It even has Firefox's Pronounce add on stumped.

    It looked like a "sell-um" to me as well.
