Please take "Tazmania" simply because I honestly think no one knows there isn't a Z in it unless you're from there.

To be fair, Americans seem to replace S with Z just about everywhere!

Level 66

Well I honestly think we use the letter S more than other letters. Possessionlessness is an example. I Would say we often over look the letter Z, but we have this word: Zenzizenzizenzic. And this word can be defined by a few words using the letter Q, Zenzizenzizenzic can be defined by the Square of Squares Squaredly Squared. We should take into account the fact that we don't use the letter X a lot, but when we do, we can get words like this: Hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia (fear of number 666.) TO RECAP: I wasted 45 minutes of my life on this, Esperanto is a language I could translate Wikipedia into, Dogs are dumb, Hamsters are awesome, Anatidaephobia is the most weirdest fear ever, Sarajevo 12/24 is the best Trans-Siberian Orchestra song to exist and this post is very obsurd, but I need to keep writing to keep my sanity intact. I can now take comfort in the fact that I have 0 characters remaining in this comment and that I used the letter S a total of ? amount of times. Enjoy your day.

And Brits like to replace Z with S. For example, realize was used in the UK well before realise as far as records show.

That's especially weird because Z is less ambiguous phonetically. Why go from simple to complicated?

...but they insist we MUST still continue with it, because records show that spelling realise with a z was a British thing.

@GeographyGeek42, S is actually only the 7th most used letter in English (at least, among all the text passages that have been analyzed for letter frequency). E, T, A, O, I, and N appear more frequently. S fares a little better in your comment, being the 4th most used letter at 59 instances. Following that, A was used 64 times, T 82 times, and E 110 times.

Did you try Tezco?
+1
Level 79
May 26, 2021
Tezco should be allowed as a type-in. It was originally spelled with a z by 'The Brits', as records show, dating back to a Samuel Pepys reference in his 1651 book Leviathan in which he writes - "when a man is tired of Tezco, he is tired of life itself".

"English" dynasty? How very dare you? The Tudors were Welsh, at least in origin. Henry Tewdwr was born in Wales, of a Welsh family. He retuned from exile, landed in Wales, gathered an army and defeated the evil English king Richard (while flying the banner of Cadwalader) to claim the throne. We still aim to defeat the evil English every year in the Six Nations, with more mixed success.
