Well it is guaranteed whatever you say to me is going to take you forever because you have to pronounce every single letter.SQL and RAID are really the only exceptions that I have. I'll say those as words. But if you're a grown ass man saying the word gooey or scuzzy (as in GUI and SCSI) then I just don't know what to say to you.
Interesting. That one already is basically a word so why they'd say it differently is beyond me.That's how I've always heard it in relation to those... I used to call it Nome as in one word, silent G. Then, I heard it several times at a Linux conference video and I changed my ways...
How would you spell or say choice, chosen, chapter, etc...I question the need for two letters representing the exact same sound.
g should only be used for soft g (graphics, etc) J should be used in all other situations.
Don't even get me started on c and x. Those two letters shouldn't even exist!
No... Metallica and Slayer are not kids. Meshuggah and Gojira are not kids. Kids like Bieber and Swift. JIF is something that goes with jelly.people who like metal are younger, therefore have less manhood
and yes there are exceptions to almost every rule, and in this case it should be pronounced JIF...
Seems to only be coming from a certain few individuals who are getting WAY too worked up about it.So much buttmad in this thread...
So I suppose all those people named Gerry (yes, with the J sound to it) should be put into those labor camps as well, eh?It DOES matter, and people that pronounce it "jiff" should be sterilized by the government and put into labor camps.
Because no one calls a "gift card" a "jift card" (that deserves to continue to consume our oxygen), so dropping the "t" its still a gif.
What about the name Dougherty? "Dock-er-ty" versus "Daw-er-ty" versus "Do-er-ty?" Would that be "Duff-er-ty" in The Simpsons universe?Lol. This argument fails.
Tough = Tuff
Dough = Doh
Doughnut = Duffnut?
Also, this 'discussion' will live on forever as long as the format is used. Never mind the fact that the creator confirmed the way he intended it to sound.
I guess we're not bros. I pronounce "LOL" as "lull;" as in, there is a lull in my work as I laugh at internet memes.SCSI = Scuzzy
GUI = Gooey
LOL = Lawl
spelling out the letters results in a nut/vag-punch
It's "dat-uh" and "sat-uh." There can be no dissent! So sayeth the Leader of the Internet.If the person responsible for the creation of the image format says it's "JIF" like the peanut butter, then who the fuck are any of us to say he's wrong? He created it, he named it, case closed.
Hell, the next thing you know we'll be moving on to data (day-tuh) vs data (dat-uh) then SATA (say-tuh) vs SATA (sat-uh) and so on and so forth ad nauseum.
And he's wrong. So there!Steve Wilhite, the inventor of the widely used Web illustration, declared it should bepronounced “jif,” like the brand of peanut butter, rather than with a hard G sound.
Exactly!It "jif" only if you pronounce graphics as "jraphics"
