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?
It’'s with a long “i” sound, say the word “eye” in the middle.
sounding it out phonetically it is “jaiv” … The word is akin to speaking slang.
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?”
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
