U R taking this 2 seriously. Gymnasium isn't short for Jamesnasium...doesn't seem to bother people. Religion, Region, other soft G's followed by an I. I used to be a soft G, but now I'm a straight up gangsta G. The streets have been good to me.

It's the same situation as Southerners having their own enunciation for certain words, like Pecan, Roof, and Root. Northerners say those as Peh-kon, Ruff, and Rut. If you want to get technical about it, the correct saying is actually G.I.F., or if you want to say the word, Graphics Interchange Format, it's easier to just say gif or jif.

We should start a peanut butter company and call it Gif. Then when Jif sues we can get a legal precedent on how to pronounce it.

The guy who invented it says that it's pronounced with a J sound. I don't really see what other evidence you need. I just kind of say whichever I'm in the mood for.

Sometimes I worry The Yancey has too much time on his hands and then I realize how ironic this thought was.

I pronounce it gif with a hard G. No one has ever tried to correct me on it - it doesn't seem important enough to correct.

Default Re: How do you pronounce .GIF?

I've always pronounced it with a soft G, mainly because its clearer what I'm talking about.

If someone pronounced it with a hard G, I would assume they were saying 'Gift' since its so close to that.
