Given that we're discussing how gif is pronounced, you just said absolutely nothing.

On a side note, nice roll.

Gif= Graphic Interchange Format.

...Is 'graphic' pronounced with a j now?
#337 to #49 - John Cena (05/23/2013) [-]
You mean like "giraffe", "gem", "germane", "German", etc? Don't pretend the English language isn't full of soft G's. GIF is pronounced with a soft G because when it was developed its creator gave it the slogan, "choosy developers choose GIF".
#261 to #49 - John Cena (05/23/2013) [-]
NASA should now be pronounced Nay-Saw by that logic because of Aeronautics
#264 to #49 - iperson (05/23/2013) [-]
ASAP means As soon as possible, yet the notation for the first 'as' is pronounced with a long 'a' sound.
Acronyms aren't meant to be pronounced, instead said letter by letter, but we choose to because it's faster. If it's pronounced with a 'zh' sound, it still makes perfect sense.
User avatar #273 to #49 - cabbagemayhem (05/23/2013) [-]
Acronyms are pronounced according to their letters, not the words that make them up.
And, the designers have always said it was pronounced as 'J', like gin, giant, or ginger.

NATO
North Atlantic Treaty Orginization
Is it pronounced "Nahto"?
No
Its pronounced Nato.
User avatar #365 to #364 - cabbagemayhem (05/24/2013) [-]
Nato is pronounced exactly how it is sounded out using the letters like I said. The same with PETA and I have no idea what they're trying to say about JPEG down there. It's pronounced jay-peg.
User avatar #370 to #365 - Endofzeeworld (05/24/2013) [-]
Uh, Nato actually isn't pronounced using the letters like I said.
Did you read my comment?
#372 to #370 - cabbagemayhem (05/24/2013) [-]
Unfortunately, I did read your comment. It seems to be trying to argue against the natural pronunciation of acronyms, despite the fact that Nato is pronounced as it is spelled and definitely not pronounced according to the words it is derived from. In fact it was so backwards, I thought you might be arguing for my side.
User avatar #373 to #372 - Endofzeeworld (05/24/2013) [-]
oh **** , I was arguing for your side. It seems I did not read your comment.
sorry
User avatar #374 to #373 - cabbagemayhem (05/24/2013) [-]
Oh, lol. Friendly fire.
#80 to #49 - John Cena (05/23/2013) [-]
Why do you say PEETA for PETA? When it should be PEHTA clearly. What about jpeg? That's a "f" sound so do you say JFEG? Because I do. I ******* do.
User avatar #203 to #80 - yutdollacwwwthree (05/23/2013) [-]
JPEG is pronounced JPEG
User avatar #362 to #203 - hobomeak (05/24/2013) [-]
i used to have a bad habit where i pronounced it like jay-peg
User avatar #367 to #362 - yutdollacwwwthree (05/24/2013) [-]
I still do, I don't know a single person who doesn't actually
User avatar #375 to #367 - hobomeak (05/26/2013) [-]
i don't know how it started i just don't remember discovering it and pronouncing it jay-peg

#340 to #29 - John Cena (05/23/2013) [-]
Acronyms are pronounced as new words, not as their component words are.

PETA, NASA, ASAP, etc...
User avatar #350 to #29 - trollins (05/23/2013) [-]
The creator of the .gif pronounces it "jiff"
#31 to #29 - cookiedude (05/23/2013) [-]
I saw that you had been thumbed down so I put you back to neutral because you have brought evidence to make your claim.
Also I agree with you.
#36 to #31 - John Cena (05/23/2013) [-]
I thumbed you down because I hate faggots who say **** like that.
Also I commented as anonymous because **** you.
#208 to #36 - John Cena (05/23/2013) [-]
**** those ******* , you're a pretty cool guy anon and I thumbed you up because of reasons.
#43 to #29 - John Cena (05/23/2013) [-]
Djraphics Interchange Format.
User avatar #8 - lavitts (05/22/2013) [-]
Graphics Interchange Format. Graphics uses the "guh" sound, and so I will carry that over into it's initialism.

Why hello there, my old friend. How have you been as off late, Con Seanery?
User avatar #39 to #8 - psykobear (05/23/2013) [-]
Well, the creator can declare it however he pleases.
You can call it whatever you want, but you will be wrong. The creator chooses the pronunciation.
#139 to #8 - John Cena (05/23/2013) [-]
Technically it's an acronym, not an initialism.
User avatar #22 to #8 - toonlinktwentytwo (05/23/2013) [-]
you do realize acronyms aren't pronounced based off of the pronunciation of its words
take for example
GATS pronounced with a hard G
but it stands for General Agreement on Trade in Services
#11 to #8 - Tiblets (05/23/2013) [-]
Well, that means we should start calling it a "Gee" not a "Jee", huh?

#184 - polarboyicecream (05/23/2013) [-]
So you could pronounce making a gif as 'jiffing'
User avatar #42 - hazelino (05/23/2013) [-]
i've always said gif, with a hard g. It's funny because in my language "gif" means poison.
User avatar #44 to #42 - Shramin (05/23/2013) [-]
Sure its not Gift that means poison?
User avatar #45 to #44 - hazelino (05/23/2013) [-]
No, i'm dutch, gif is the dutch word for poison..
User avatar #46 to #45 - Shramin (05/23/2013) [-]
oh well that makes more sense then xD
#95 to #42 - John Cena (05/23/2013) [-]
Dutch, I presume?

How do you spell Graphic Interchange Format with a J?

This is a jiant mistake, we should be jentle with people's feelings, it's a jenuine problem. Jenerally though I think if we put our minds to it we can move past this to jel together as a jeneration of today's funnyjunk.
