How do you pronounce JIVE?

Today one of my co-workers has asked “what a heck is this JIVE on your t-shirt?” But she pronounced it like “djeev”. I think it’'s like java - “djayv”. What is the official pronunciation of JIVE?

wroot,

It’'s with a long “i” sound, say the word “eye” in the middle.

-Matt

sounding it out phonetically it is “jaiv” … The word is akin to speaking slang.

sangandongo

Well, that phonetic works perfect for Spanish speakers. It also rhymes with “life”.

so i m correct when i pronounce JIVE which rhymes with DIVE.

ok, so i’‘m pronouncing it right It’'s just because Java is sometimes pronounced as Jova, so i have asked to be sure.

And how do you pronounce “wroot?” :stuck_out_tongue:

weeell, not right, something like ‘‘vrut’’ , rhymes with boot and this nickname is combined of my old nickname’'s first letter and “root”. Not so simple as you see Not asking about your nickname :stuck_out_tongue:
