There's a big controversy about this atm since it's gonna be a part of the new XBox's voice activation stuff, so everyone's trying to figure out how to say it. The inventor of the GIF says it's with a J, but Obama's chief of Technology says it's with a hard G. So how do you say it?

I've always said it with a G sound. But I type it way more than I say it, so it hardly matters.

It's jif. The inventor says it's jif. It sounds better pronounced as jif. Obama doesn't know anything.

I may have said it twice in my life but both times have been with a hard G. Like 'gift' minus the T.

Edit: Saying jif in Britain is just stupid because it's also the name of a brand of lemon juice.

Jif. It's not even up for debate.



Well, if he spelled it .JIF in the first place, we wouldn't have this problem.

The creators were wrong. If it were pronounced "jif" then why is gift with a hard G? And "Jif" is already a thing.

A hard g because a) graphical image format and b) it conforms to phonological convention eg. gift. The inventor can go gump off a cliff.

Why not? They likely understand language syntax much better than the average idiotic native English speaker. That being said, .gif is with a hard G.
