This is a Journal entry by Woodlark

Browsing through the Guide's index, I noticed several posts on the topic of "zzzz" but none on "z", itself.

In the English language, z is the last letter of the alphabet. One can also determine which style of English the speaker has learned by how they pronounce this letter. U.S. Americans (and those who learned from them) pronounce this "zee". This pronunciation, besides sounding vulgar, rhymes with c, producing a potential conflict in understanding. Everyone else who speaks the English language pronounces this letter as "zed". Much better.

This biased journal entry was written by me while preparing to take my cat to the vet for her yearly check-up and shots.
