Gust in case you were wondering...

Recommended Posts

Ran into this today. Turns out I've been pronouncing it correctly since the CompuServe days!


The debate over how to pronounce GIF has been raging for too long. Hard G or Soft G? “Gif” or “Jif?” If only there was a co-branded, limited-edition jar of edible education to finally set the record straight. A collaboration between two titans of pronunciation that unequivocally declares, “Jif is peanut butter, GIFs are animations.” This is your lucky day, and this is that jar.’





If you jive it some thought and jo about it phonetically, it gust makes sense.

So they're saying it should officially rhyme with Jif peanut butter, right?  This puts it to bed for the soft G people over the hard G people.  That closes the debate forever!  😉


You got that just a teeny bit backwards. 😉

I believe in the correct Australasian pronunciation with G rather than the abomination of US “English”.




America and Australia. Two countries separated by a common language.


Except we apparently both pronounce GIF with a hard "G".


Good on you!
