    "character" = "char" = "care"

    Weirdest thing I've said today :hs:

    Probably char but I don't think I've ever said it outloud. It's not like ASCII or GIF (the last one is loads of fun to throw at geeks for an argument).

    I've always said "care" because that's how it sounds in character.

    but I have been hearing people say "charrr" like as in "char-broiled" or as in "charred"

    I was just curious what was more common.

    mine:

    char = "chaar" [as in pirate]
    varchar = "varchaar" [as in pirate]
    gif = "jif" [like the peanut butter, 'g' as in giraffe]

    Around here we all just say char, the way it's spelled (chaar I guess)... Never heard it pronounced any other way... I say GIF as it's spelled too, with a hard G.
