This video really nags me
@Bionicbonk, same. Damn naggers
Ironic because on this show if you said Giffer with a hard G you would actually be incorrect since the word is pronounced with a soft G according to the creator. I’m not taking a side on the debate, just pointing out the irony of the gif.
@Blasphemy is Fun, well the creator is wrong
@Blasphemy is Fun, if you have to change the way its spelt so people know how you say it, you’re saying it wrong
@Blasphemy is Fun, But that IS taking a side
@Jdrawer, how so?
@Blasphemy is Fun, You pointed out that one side is correct. That's taking a side.
@SimonPetrikov, in English we allow the creator to select the name of an invention. So by the rules of “Wheel of Fortune” “Gif” with a soft “G” would be correct. I stated objective fact, not an opinion. Therefore I did not take a side on the debate, merely pointed out the irony in the gif.
@Blasphemy is Fun, Sides don't have to be opinion-based.
@Jdrawer, well if something is not opinion based and is just fact then it’s just true... plus I’m not weighing in on what it should be called, just how it would work on this game show.
@Dexios S Divine, you don’t... hard vs soft g.
@Blasphemy is Fun, “The counsel has made a decision, but I think it’s a stupid ass decision and have elected to ignore it.”
@Blasphemy is Fun, let's take another look on why the creator is wrong.
There is a brand of peanut butter called JIF. We all know how to say that word. Here comes along a gifted programmer who is crap at linguistics who thinks GIF and JIF should be pronounced the same. If he truly wanted the word to say Jif, then he should have spelled it they way we all know how to pronounce.
Bit wait, JIF is trademarked and he couldn't use it. Correct, so he again should have realized he was about to make a mistake by thinking he could change how society interprets combinations of letters and would naturally not pronounce GIF as JIF since someone already set a linguistic precedent.
Creators can be, and often are, wrong. Just because they did one thing right doesnt make every other action gold.
@Verzaad, that’s like arguing that the creator of spongebob square pants is wrong because his lower torso is actually a rectangle. It’s pedantic and still wrong because the person who creates something has the right to name it regardless of whether it’s a perfect reflection of reality. Dude wanted to use a soft g so it’s a soft g. People can say it however they like because it’s common place in the culture and we all understand both pronunciations, but when it comes to “correcting” the creators pronunciation there are only two things you can do and that’s nothing and deal with it.
So honestly I don’t want to hijack this meme, but I just wanted to share that I’m being considered for officer dispatch in my home town. It’ll be a big step up from when I was seriously depressed last year to working my way up and out of that hole. I just wanted to say Thank You to all of the members here for helping me, even if it was for just a quick laugh.
@Butcher of Blaviken, we're all here to spread some happiness around. I'm glad you're feeling and doing better now.
@AJMalone, found out today that I’ve got the job. Literally so excited for this job.
@Butcher of Blaviken, 😄 yay! 🐀🐀🐀 conga rats!
Naggers.. it was naggers
