      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

How do you pronounce GIMP?

Recommended Posts

Guest xaff

Even though it should be pronounced "G-I-M-P", I say 'gimp'. (With a Norwegain sound, not "gimmy" or "gui".)

... Or is it GIMP as GUI?

 

...and how do you pronounce GUI??? :P

 

...because here, in spanish as you might know we don't use english words or english acronyms

 

 

I pronounce it as the phoneme "gui" sounds in spanish then I add the "mp". Just one syllable

I don't think we ever settled the arguement on how to pronounce Linux and now you're asking about GIMP? :lol:

 

Not that I'm much help but I pronounce it "GNU Image Manipulation Program." J/k! I pronounce it gimp as in limp. Btw, according to the jargon file gnu is pronounced gnoo or noo. No wonder we stay confused!

gimp like give

 

It's guh-new, says GNU.org

(GNU is a recursive acronym for ``GNU's Not Unix''; it is pronounced "guh-NEW".)

 

So even though my teacher calls it "G"-"N"-"U", he's wrong :)

 

My only exception is gnome, which I pronounce like the dictionary, nome with a silent g. Don't know why, maybe because it's a real word and was before the desktop!

 

Other than that, for me it's guh-rip, therefore grip; guh-imp, therefore gimp, etc.
