How do you guys pronounce GIF?

No idea, but two community college computer classes say "jiff." Took points of our exams for every time we pronounced it wrong when we asked a question. Friend o' mine lost 15 on his final exam 'cause he loved pissin' the teacher off.

Jiff

Like "jiff", respecting the way the inventor of the file format pronounces it.

That's an illogical appeal to authority. The person who names something does not get to override English and decide how people will pronounce the acronym. If the founder of International Business Machines (IBM) declared that he intended for the acronym to be pronounced "Jibum" rather than I-B-M, that would be irrelevant. G.I.F is an acronym. The founder named it Graphical Interchange Format. His authority ends there. How we pronounce the acronym is determined by the rules of the English language.

GIF means Graphic Interchange Format.
Graphic, with a hard G.
Not like Giraffe.
Get it? End of discussion, like forever.

>>717470127

Fuck off with your idiotic bullshit. People like me were pronouncing it the proper way, JIF, likely since before you were born. So a generation of ignorant fucktards mispronounce a word, it DOES NOT redefine the word. Idiot.

>>717467148
The fact that you have to ask people whether they pronounce GIF as "GIF or JIF" should make it clear which is correct. GIF is pronounced GIF. JIF is pronounced JIF. Some faggot declaring that he wants you to pronounce GIF like JIF doesn't make it correct, it just makes you his mindless bitch.

its a made up word. it can be spelled however you want...the creator of the word decided to pronounce it as JIFF.

Laser means "light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation" and we pronounce the a not as the "æ" in the amplification but as "eɪ" like in gay - which brings me to the point I was trying to make:
You're a fucking faggot.

That's what happens when you're dumb but actually think you're smart.

That's what your life is gonna be buddy, failure because you aren't nearly as smart as you think you are.

Read the rest of what he wrote dipshit, it's an acronym, acronyms have no unique pronunciation.

Nice appeal to age but you misjudged mine by a couple of decades.

A generation of fucktards mispronouncing Graphic as Giraffic does not make it right. No person has authority here. It's not a hard G because ANYONE says so. It's a hard G because the dictionary says graphics is pronounced with a hard G. The end. Now I don't care if you want to pronounce it JIF, but fuck off telling me I'm pronouncing it wrong.

It should be spelled out since it's an acronym.

>>717467148
I don't know, never had to actually say the word "gif." But when I read it, that voice inside my head pronounces it like "jiff" with a 'j' sound- you know, that voice inside 'my' head. Yeah, I know, that voice inside 'your' head. No, it's the voice in MY head, not your head. No, it's that fucking voice in YOUR head, not mine you asshole!

Please, make the voice inside my head stop.
>>
>>717467148
The guy who made GIFs said it's "jif." I think that's fucking retarded. The G should be pronounced how a G is normally pronounced.
>>
>>717467523
Hard G as in;
>"Gee"
Or more so
>"Guh"/"Juh" sound?
