They say it how it is spelt anyone that says it with a J cannot read.

This is a GIF.

It is pronounced with a hard G.


This is JIF.

It is pronounced with a hard J.

So if I say giraffe with a soft g, it means I can't read? In some words the G sounds like a J. Gif is one of them.

Don't care. I already have a jif, and it's peanut butter; I don't need another.

Last month, no less an authority than the White House posted an image on its new Tumblr feed advocating for the hard-G. And the Oxford English Dictionary says both pronunciations are acceptable.
So, here's wishing Mr. Wilhite "Jood Luck."

Well we all know the White House is an excellent authority on everything else...

RE: TTA Accent Tag
The responses have been remarkably interesting; all you people and your crazy accents.

Spoiler alert for the coming weekend: it's gif, with a g, not a j.

RE: TTA Accent Tag
Why would anyone pronounce it as "JIF"? The acronym "GIF" means "Graphics Interface Format," not "Jraphics Interface Format."

Because the creator is wrong. If he wanted it pronounced with a J he should not have out a G at the beginning.
