*Daughter attends a cybersecurity camp*
Me: So what did you learn today at camp?
Her: Some people pronounce sudo su-due
I admit I pronounce sudo incorrectly. But do it anyways by habit.
Are you willing to admit you are pronouncing gif incorrectly?
it's called "death of the author":
Once you publish something, you lose all authority over it. It now belongs to the audience.
So gif with hard g, and sudo pronounced soo-doh
@climagic I pronounce "sudo" as "doas"
The creator of sudo is right, and the creator of gif is wrong. sudo stands for "super-user do (command)", which is prounounced su...do. Gif stands for graphics interchange format, which is pronounced gif.
@sir By that logic you should start saying jpeg as jfeg. and several other acronyms would be different. :D
@climagic jpeg cannot be pronounced as a word according to the normal rules of English pronounciation, so this does not apply
@climagic and the creators of SCSI intended it to be pronounced “sexy” and were dismayed that it caught on as “scuzzy”.
It doesn’t matter what the creators intend, just what people do.
It reminds me of hearing/watching Ly-nus Torvalds pronouncing Linux "Li-nux".
I personally say "sue-doe" and have no qualms about that.
As for "jif" - nope. That's just the cleaning product in my mind.
