like a GIF file. Hard or soft 'g'?
I love referencing this.
and you can tell they got it by Googling "DiSism" and not, y'know, like, actually being there at the time.
For some reason I always want to pronounce it 'shmemer'.
Explain yourself, you.
YOU BASTARD SHMEMER
no idea how to pronounce it. mi-noo-sher?
surely its min-you-tay ????//???/
And it's pronounced "ree".
I always say fack-ard, before correcting myself.
"GIF" - or has no one ever had to say this out loud?
Although when thinking of an example of a word to use as an example that it's a hard G, I thought of 'giraffe', negating my point completely.
as in N.W.A
Reminded me that I too have been saying the word 'banal' wrong in my head.
you pronounce it in your head so that would be the way you say it out loud? Unless you are THAT unsure of whether you're right or not that you then refuse to say it altogether OR simply spell it out loud to the person you want to say it to?
Find it hard to say
