Oh wait i've got a good one......... VAGINA.
It's Guh IF, because it is. Sorry bald inventor man.
Did the inventor of the word decide how to pronounce "colonel"? Yes? He's a f***ing idiot then.
In short: each to their own. Oxford says that both are ok... that's that then.
By the rules of the English language the correct spelling of fish should be GHOTI
Hard G for me, but maybe I should change that now I've been educated in how to pronounce a file type extensions name !
Definitely something ghotiy going on here...
What a complete goke. Hahahaha!
If he wanted it to be pronounced 'jif', he should have given it a .jif extension.
Yay! I've been saying it right all along, screw all of you!

End of story.
As if dyslexics don't have enough to worry about....
Hard G baby.. all night long!

Dear Steve Wilhite
Hard g makes more sense. If you want a word to be pronounced with soft g, use j instead, why not? Apply the reverse, if you have a word with a g, let it be a hard g. Having a soft g at all creates ambiguity. Just because words like giraffe exist, doesn't mean we should continue the trend.
You may have invented the format but that doesn't mean you know anything about linguistics.
So basically, it's pronounced "Geoff" in Australian.
No. It's not pronounced 'jif'... Well it is but only by a very VERY small minority of people.
It is pronounced with a hard G, because that is how it is pronounced when most people say the word... and yes I'm now claiming it's a word too! Bite me.
Someone do a poll!
Separate names with a comma.
