Wait, when you say "GIF", you pronounce it like "Gift" without the "t"?

literally I don't give a **** . I pronounce "jif" because that's how "gi" is usually pronounced, but I couldn't care less about how other people on the internet pronounce it. If it comes up in real conversation then I will back my point up, but until then some people just need to calm the **** down.

I think it's hilarious how upset people get over this.

This is as stupid as correcting someone when they spell color colour
Both are right at this point.

If both are correct, why does colour have the squiggles?

the creator of the ******* file type says its pronounced jif

so **** off

And thats a load of absolute ******** . To pronounce it via text he wrote soft g as 'jif' and hard g as 'gif', the way the actual file format is spelled! If the representation of the wrong pronunciation is spelled the same way as the actual ******* word then its not wrong!

I hate having to present my case whenever something like this is posted I pronounce it GIF (hard G) for one primary reason, the .Jif format already exists, if you have two formats of computer files pronounced the same way, it leads to confusion, logically the .Gif file should be pronounced with a hard G in order to circumvent said confusion.

Giraffe, giant, gin, gender, gym, generation, gem, genes, ginger, gypsy, gentle, gerbil, etc.

Can someone legitimately explain to me why it is so bad to have gif be pronounced jif?

I'm not trying to troll, I just genuinely don't see the debate when there are dozens of words beginning with g and a vowel that start with a j sound.

People this is the English Language we're talking about. It doesn't, and I don't think ever will, make sense.

Pic is extremely related.
User avatar #166 to #163 - Vpirate (03/23/2014) [-]
There are a lot of rules that makes this picture wrong.

But your point stands, English is ridiculously complicated
But at least it doesn't assign genders to inanimate objects like lamps.
User avatar #126 - warioteam ONLINE (03/23/2014) [+] (37 replies)
Sometimes a g followed by an i results in a j sound, and i think the creator has the right to choose between j and g.
Perhaps the way people pronounce it is based on their intelligence.

By that logic a JPG should be pronounced jaypheg, because it stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group,
yet people say jaypeg, like the initials.
Deal with it.

I feel like the man who CREATED the subject in question should definitely have final say on what it's pronounced as. That's like saying "I don't care if the creator called it a computer, I'm gonna call it the com-pee-you-ter." Everybody can't just call some words other words just cause they feel more comfortable with the alternative, they've already been set. What would that accomplish other then turning the English language into a ******** of confusion?
