Is it "chim" as in "chimney", "Chime," or "Kime" like "chimera?"
I vaguely remember an npc pronouncing it like "chimmer", I might be wrong though. Keep in mind that the way npc's pronounce words may also be incorrect. Like how some books in the game contain falsities.
Pronounced AHLD-Mary. Means 'of the First Folk.' 'Old Mary' is a Colovian corruption, and joke.
Dwemer (the Dwarves) is DWAY-mare. Means 'Deep Folk.'
Dunmer (the Dark Elves) is doon-MARE. Means 'Dark Folk.' Colovian hicks say DUHN-merh, but the Dark Elves laugh at them or strike at them, depending upon the number of hicks present.
Chimer (precursor to Dunmer) is KY-mare. Means 'Changed Folk.' Oops! This is a secret..!
Altmer (High Elves) is AHLT-mare. Means 'High Folk.'
Bosmer (Wood Elves) is BO-mare. Means 'Green Folk.'
And, finally, Daedra is EITHER DAY-druh OR DEE-druh, depending upon your inclination. DEE-druh is the Dunmeri preference and, since they made up the word, will be more acceptable come TESIII. Means 'Our Stronger, Better Ancestors.'
Supposed to be from MK when Morrowind was coming out.
