>its pronounced with a J
half the world renamed this cleaning shit Cif because they can't pronounce J's, what makes you think there is any legitimacy saying 'Gi' is a J?

even if the creator is so pedantic that it must be, it simply isn't, because people know what a g is.
>>
>>51535509
>>51535513
I will pronounce g as in gift. I think if a lot of us do the same, gif will become the correct pronunciation instead of jif.

We can do it, brothers! Say it with me. Gif. Gif. Gif.

they had an advert explaining it, because most countries had difficulty in their marketing research they changed it, I forget without going back and watching the advert but it was pretty much everywhere that english isn't 1st language.

to be clear, they were already calling it 'cif' because j is c...

>>51535729
That's a good point. On the side of "GIF" there are rational arguments and foreign rules. That's something.

I had zero idea so many people were autistic about this topic until earlier this year when one of my friends dropped buckets of spaghetti trying to tell me I was wrong for pronouncing it "jif".

I never looked up how people pronounced it, what the original pronunciation was, etc. I just thought it was "jif", like G in George Washington.

The funny part is there are so many people that insist it ABSOLUTELY HAS TO BE "G" as in "gift" and they pronounce "jpeg" like normal as opposed to "jfeg" (joint photographic experts group).

Why not just have it be both? I don't understand why it can't just be either or. We clearly understand what each other mean when we pronounce it either way. It honestly seems like to me people who absolutely have to have it their way (normally people who pronounce it with a soft g) are on the spectrum somewhere.

>Graphics Interchange Format

>Graphics

since when do people say giraffe-ics?

And with that logic, guitar becomes "juh"tar

game becomes "jay"me

garage becomes "jah"-"reggae"

I could go on, but to even further my point, let's look at another acronym with J and G:

>JPG

often pronounced "jay-peg" or "jay pee gee" (hard G), JPG stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group

>Joint

the letter J is a consonant that always has a harsh pronunciation. Going by the retarded /ˈdʒJf/ logic, pronouncing jpg would sound like "gay pedge" or "gay pee jee".

I know, after repeating it to yourself a few times it sounds just as retarded as "JIF".
>>
>>51535788
>and they pronounce "jpeg" like normal as opposed to "jfeg" (joint photographic experts group).
The first letter in abbreviation is always treated differently.

The fact that you have to spell it differently so people can pronounce it "correctly" is evidence of how its supposed to be pronounced
>>
>>51536014
It's _spelled_ GIF and _pronounced_ /ˈdʒJf/
>>
>>51536014
It is evidence that English is not spelled phonetically with the Roman alphabet and we need to hurry up and switch to a proper Shavian alphabet to clear up these ridiculous arguments.

The difference in origin. 'Photo' is of Greek origin while 'flash' is an original English word.

Pronounce right, you keks

It's G-iph

Jiff fags are degenerates
>>
>>51535509
the G stands for Graphic.

Therefore, it's pronounced Gif
>>
There are several good reasons not to pronounce it "jif". There aren't any good reasons to pronounce it "jif. The creator is just autistic and is essentially playing the "its my ball, I make the rules" card

the most obvious is that the G stands for Graphical, which has a hard G

but also .jif is already a file extension unrelated to .gif. An image file no less, extremely confusing if .gif is pronounce "jif" for seemingly no reason

Do you also pronounce SCSI as "sexy" like authors wanted to?

If you named your child a certain name, would you want other people calling him/her something else? Like the "Ahnna" "Anna" pronunciation, he decided that it was to be pronounced how he wanted it. It's not your file format and you need to stop projecting your overly inflated egos. Its pronounced jif because that's how he wanted in pronounced, it's not deviant of English grammar standards it just means you don't get your way on everything and that makes you upset. Pls put put your lollipop down, junior, and man up. Boo hoo its pronounced a way I don't like so I'm going to say it how I want to say it.

At least accept both pronunciations you fucking autists. Nothing pisses me off more than when someone corrects someone else or goes "WAIT, HOOOOOW DID YOU PRONOUNCE THAT??" and then spergs all over the place like they're being fucking denied the basic freedom of speech.

Tl;dr It's really not outlandish, jif is how it's pronounced, stop being a faggot and at least accept both

GEE is with the J sound not the hard G. So it is Jiff not Gif.

The European Commission has announced an agreement whereby English will be the official language of the EU, rather than German, which was the other contender. Her Majesty's Government conceded that English spelling had room for improvement and has therefore accepted a five-year phasing in of "Euro-English".

In the first year, "s" will replace the soft "c". Sertainly, this will make sivil servants jump for joy. The hard "c" will be dropped in favour of the "k", Which should klear up some konfusion and allow one key less on keyboards.

There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year, when the troublesome "ph" will be replaced with "f", making words like "fotograf" 20% shorter.

In the third year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible. Governments will enkourage the removal of double letters which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil agre that the horible mes of the silent "e" is disgrasful.

By the fourth yer, peopl wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing "th" with "z" and "w" with "v".

During ze fifz yer, ze unesesary "o" kan be dropd from vords kontaining "ou" and similar changes vud of kors be aplid to ozer kombinations of leters. After zis fifz yer, ve vil hav a reli sensibl riten styl. Zer vil be no mor trubls or difikultis and everivun vil find it ezi to understand ech ozer. ZE DREM VIL FINALI COM TRU!

If people want it pronounced "JIF" then it shouldn't stand for Graphical Interchange Format. This is as bad as the tabs vs spaces argument

It's arbitrary and you're an autist if you think one is correct and one isn't
>>
Sometimes g is pronounced j before I or e, sometimes it isn't. Generally in Romantic loanwords is it pronounced soft, otherwise it is pronounced hard. Since gif fits in neither of these and the words that make up an acronym sometimes have no effect on its pronunciation (see scuba and laser), it doesn't matter how it's pronounced

Yes, it can be either one. Some people will see it, think of words like giant and ginger, and apply the soft pronunciation to it. Others would think of words like gift or give and pronounce it hard, which is equally as valid.

>>51551121
