If you don't find it acceptable to pronounce 'g' with a soft sound, start saying my name differently.

Honestly, I don't care either way, but most of the arguments I've seen for the using a hard 'g' sound have been along the lines of "YOU CAN'T PRONOUNCE A 'G' LIKE THAT ROWR!!!1!1!!1!ELEVENTY!"

My argument for a hard 'G' in GIF would probably be along the lines that 'Gi' generally, as far as I know, is pronounced with a hard 'G'. Giddy, git, gig, gilt, girl, gizmo, give, gibbet, gimp, etc. The only 'Gi' words that I can think of off the top of my head are gin and gigolo, both of which are anglicized forms of Romance languages.

I don't really care too much. It's an image format.

the point is that it's a stupid argument and if you 'correct' someone for pronouncing it either way you are a gigantic dipnizzle

If anything, I lean more towards siding with the guy who created the format, only because well, it just seems like an easy, simple answer. The fact that there is a debate just honestly boggles my mind. I mean, if anyone has ANY kind of say in the issue, it should be the creator . . . but people still argue over it, which, as I said, simply boggles my mind.

also, gigantic and giant and genes and genuine and gems and generosity and germane and genius and gee golly gosh this is silly and pointless, just like the argument. Wink

I say it with a 'j' sound, and I do alright for myself.

and yes I'm pronouncing that with a hard 'g'
I reserve the other sound for jay-pegs
other strange pronunciations of abbreviations that I have picked up include 'sequel' insertions and lucidytuvs

No, no, you must do what my one buddy does and pronounce it with a hard g and long i, "Gyfe" as he wrote it.

How about a hard g, a long I, and or pronounce the f as a v.
