How Do You Spell GDF?
The correct spelling of the acronym "GDF" is commonly mistaken due to its pronunciation. GDF stands for "Gaz de France" which means Gas of France. The word "Gaz" is French for gas and is pronounced with a hard "z" sound /gaz/. The acronym GDF, however, is pronounced with a softer "z" sound /dʒiː diː ɛf/. This is due to the English language adapting the acronym to make it easier to pronounce while maintaining its intended meaning.
