"Japhics Intejchanje Fojmat". The author probably had "bjaces" on when he coined it that.

It's spelled GIF so I pronounce it as GIF, not JIF.

"...the inventor of the format, Steve Wilhite, has insisted from its introduction at a computer conference in the late 1980s that the pronunciation is [jif] (Show IPA) with an initial soft g, as in gelatin and giant. That pronunciation is even part of the official specifications for the format and is the one used by many computer gurus, but both pronunciations are commonly in use." http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/gif?s=t

I think jif is more proper. Hehe.

I use hard G because it stands for Graphic. So do you also pronounce Graphic as Jraphic?


Like you are mike tyson talking about Jraphic park.

Hmmm...I guess I pronounce it with a hard G. It just sounds right. I don't care what anybody else says--it sounds right to me.
