Question on the word meh - Page 3

post #31 of 35
I agree with a few that have already stated that the word 'meh' indicates a significant level of apathy towards something or someone.

It's more of a grunt than it is an actual word

Here's my question:

Is the word meh primarily an internet expression? Are there people who use this word in real life conversation? If so, in what country did you here this word? I'm not trying to be sarcastic. I'm just facsinated with English vocabulary words.
Younger people use it in real life. I heard it in Australia and originally in the simpsons

It's quite common along with sif (as if).

It's far more common in real life than lol. It's not really annoying because it is an effective communication tool that serves a valid purpose unlike lol (which is a poor substitute for laughing).

I haven't really picked it up anywhere, I just started doing it.
I only "type/say" it online though. To me, it's sort of a written out shrug of the shoulders. Like I don't really care.

Hey Sean, what do you think of Digimon?"
"Meh, I could care less."
