It's soft g. I don't care what the creator says, you wouldn't pronounce "gift" with a hard g.

GIGA: hard g or soft g?

Answer: Doc Brown was right, the prefix giga must be pronounced with a soft G.

gif and gift are two different words, though. Get the gist of what I'm saying?

Jif is correct, but it sounds like shit and everyone says gif anyway.

>>712816

No, giga is correct. Jiga was only later added as an alternative pronunciation because people kept pronuncing it the wrong way. It's like how "literally" has become to also mean "figuratively" because idiots keep saying things like "I literally died".
